24 Jul Garden Clean Ups: Benefits of a clean, maintained garden
Garden clean ups can prevent pests, weed seed and diseases from overwintering and prevents problems when temperatures are warm. Cleaning out your garden for winter also allows you to spend more time on the fun aspects of gardening in spring and provides a clean slate for perennials and vegetables to grow. Below you can find four benefits of a clean, maintained garden:
- Removal of leaves:
Removal of leaves improves the appearance of your garden and while some leaves are good for the turf, too much may prevent sunlight from reaching the turf which will cause it to dry out. Excess leaves may also cause fungal diseases.

During the winter, the weather may damage tree branches, but carefully removing the dangerous limbs can improve the tree’s health. Perennials should be trimmed before new growth begins, and finally your garden will have a tidy appereance.
