Growing Lily of the Valley?

My husband mowed down my lily of the valley in late summer in northern Michigan. This year the leaves seem smaller and the flowers are also short. I have another area that he didn't cut and there is a big difference between the two. Should they be left to die on their own in the fall, do they need the green leaf to feed the root as with spring bulbs.

I would leave them alone. I would also divide them if they seem to be too crowded.

Let the tops die back and then cut off. Take up every two years or so and transplant the babies.
