Oh no, winter has arrived (maybe) and you haven’t raked all the leaves and cleaned up your yard!

Well, if you are one of many, many lawn procrastinators, take heart. A messy winter lawn is good for birds. Seeds and leaves provide food for birds. And a brush pile is great cold-weather shelter, especially between trips to your bird feeders. So lighten up and relax, or go do some other chores around the house.
