In Western Washington, the end of summer is the beginning of the growing season. This is a good time to clear away dead stalks and ready the landscape for mulching with leaves. Do minor pruning so that evergreens and other woody plants will look their best when the weather turns chilly.
It’s trivial to groom when the weather is comfortable and debris can be mulched in place with a mower. Dead stalks break down in days and keep the soil happy and kicking.
