The annual ritual of fall garden cleanup can be a toilsome, yet rewarding task.  After racking up piles and piles of leaves, it is really nice to see some green grass poking through as one last gasp of summer.  Cutting back the old, dead stems from garden beds can create a more manicured look for the long and bare winter season.  However, it may be worth considering a scale back on fall cleanup tasks to save some needed habitat for wildlife this winter.
