Is it Ok to cut down the leaves of the lily of the valley? As they do not cover an entire area, they look a bit messy all over the bed. Thank you.

Cutting them down early before they die back naturally could cause loss of flowers for next spring.
If you have a large area of them and your not to concerned about the loss of flower, you certainly can trim them back.
