In the past 25 yrs I’ve grown anything I rarely clean it up for winter. I used to when I was young but the busy seasons of raising children & caring for aging parents I chose to let it go for more important things. i began to notice how much I loved my messy winter garden for all the reasons you listed! For years my garden friends would look at me & my garden with confusions as I shared the messiness with them. But my garden was the one alive all winter with birds – whether I fill the feeders or not. Everything from tiny sparrows to flickers, hawks & even eagles. I do live in a rural area to my advantage both in the wild life & in no rules from the neighbors on messy yards.
Brian Hudelson: Depends on where you’re located. In a place like Madison, where I live, we have city places where you can drop off yard waste and they will commercially compost it. So, that’s a great way, I think in an urban setting, to get rid of the material. If you’re in a more rural setting, you might have the option to burn the material. That’s not necessarily a great, environmentally friendly method, but it’s certainly something that you can do. Sometimes I recommend that people bury the material. So, dig just a shallow trench, but make sure that the material is covered with a thin layer of soil, so that none of the plant material is exposed to the air, and then if you’re interested in home composting, you can actually get a compost bin and you can compost the material. The thing with compositing is that you need to make sure that the pile heats properly. So, 135, 145, 40 degrees Fahrenheit and that you turn it routinely and it’s that combination of the heat and the decay of the plant material that will get rid of disease-causing organisms.
Fall really is a fantastic time to garden. The first reason being that the temps have cooled down.  But, the main reason is that it gives us gardeners a jump on next spring. I’ll be honest and say that by this time, I’m usually ready for a gardening break. The flowers are tired and I’m tired. BUT, when I push myself and get these things done in the fall, it just simply makes for a better spring. So I’m challenging myself and you, as well, to get out there and get these few items checked off our lists.  Next spring, we’ll be so happy we did. Join me as I lay out my Quick & Easy Steps for Fall Garden Clean Up.
Gas-powered rotary lawn mowers can be divided into two categories: walk-behind rotary mowers and riding mowers / lawn tractors. The walk-behind rotary lawn mowers can further be classified according to whether they’re push-type lawn mowers or self-propelled. Purchase price varies greatly between these types of rotary lawn mowers, with riding mowers / lawn tractors being the most expensive, followed by self-propelled mowers. The push-type mowers are the least expensive because they require you to provide the muscle to make them move.
My lawn maintenance company specializes in one thing, low rates and affordability when it comes to lawn care service in Dallas. While we offer a full suite of lawn maintenance services to keep your yard in top-notch shape, however that does not mean that our lawn cutting prices will break the bank. Most full-service landscape maintenance companies in the Dallas Texas area will try to sell you want a full scope lawn maintenance contract that will include your mulch, shrub pruning, lawn and turf renovations, mulch and pine straw and that's great if you can afford it however we also offer all those your maintenance services however we do it on an individual basis. That's right, you can order all of these individual yard maintenance services from us and not have to sign a full 12 month lawn maintenance contract with us. That's kind of a cool thing that we like about the GreenPal lawnmowing mobile app is that it helps us keep track of all of these yard services and sell them to you as you need them throughout the year. We also offer year-round lawn maintenance and landscape care as in Dallas you can really use a lawn maintenance service to come back in the winter months just to make sure that everything is tidied up.
