    After they bloom, cut the flower stems--not the stalk, just the short stems that supported the individual blossoms. Leave the tall stalks until they turn brown naturally, because they're manufacturing food for next year's blooms. After the entire stalk has turned brown, you can cut them to the ground.

    If you're referring to lillies, when the tops turn brown and die naturally, you can cut the stems back a few inches from the ground. Examine them to make sure they are healthy. Discard the debris.

    Run over them with the lawnmower
