For the leaves, if get them mowed down, can help your yard and you can possibly leave the leaves in your garden said, Hart.
When Spring comes through you would still need to something with the leaves if they were still in your garden or yard. In your gardens, it is still an excellent time to get rid of weeds as well said Hart.
Hart said during this time of the season is a great time to start planning for how you are going to plant your garden next spring. If you have questions about your garden, you can call your U of I extension office or by going to their website at web.extension.illinois.edu.
