A tidy yard may look nice, but a messy garden is a wildlife buffet in the winter. This fall, allow your yard or garden to go to seed and grow wild to provide needed feed for birds and wildlife during the harsh winter months. Let leaves stay on the ground, allow flowers to dry and go to seed, gather branches and make a mound of them, and let grass grow tall, too. And forget the lawn care chemicals. In the spring, you can clear it and let your garden grow again.
