Clear leaves and cut back ornamental grasses as an important first step to your fall prep.
Perennials, which can have a woody stalk or stem left after the blossom fades, should be trimmed back to both promote the plant’s health and maintain a neat appearance.
And remember, bugs that love the outside during the summer usually move indoors when winter hits. They want to be cozy and warm too.
Whether you own a home or live in a managed association, taking care of leaves will keep your home looking good on the outside and bug free on the inside.
