Avoiding fall cleanup is more than just an eyesore. Leaving those dead leaves on the lawn deprives the grass of oxygen and sunshine, allows fungus to grow, and creates brown spots. The leaves can also cause your lawn to become waterlogged and cause ponding or flooding once snow melts. Often times, that small flood on the lawn can cause big floods in your basement! Also, critters like skunks and termites loves those wet, fallen branches.
Mow lawn shorter than usual
Trim branches and hedges to prevent dead or dying limbs from falling under the weight of snow and ice
”Deadhead” perennials so they grow back in the spring
Turn and/or replace mulch
