Now that's more like it Anthony! The mulch looks much better like that then in a gigantic pile in your driveway!
I can tell that it has taken a lot of work (and wheel barrows) to make your yard and garden beds resemble a park like that. Now you just need a fountain, a bench, a no littering sign and a dog catching a Frisbee to complete the look.
Thanks Marc! But this is actually the mulch from my first delivery. I still have that new pile sitting in my driveway. :) We went away for Memorial Day weekend so I didn't get any mulching done. The new pile is going around my raised beds in the vegetable garden and by the kids swingset on the other side of my house.
The fountain and the bench will have to wait though but I think I can manage a no littering sign and maybe my kids can play some frisbee. :)
thanks for posting that! We have about half of our 23 yards sitting in our driveway yet. Is that just regular bark mulch? Have you had any problems with increased insect activity? We noticed a whole lotta noseeums seemed to show up around the same time as the mulch, which seems a bit problematic. I'm also getting large numbers of slivers! any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by my site! And I'm so jealous of your property. I used to have a half acre I could plant things in. You've really done a great job getting all that mulch taken care of. The yard is looking beautiful.
Good luck with the salad. I'm almost ready to make it again.
Anthony, Looks great! Definitely time for some though. One one hand I wish I had a yard that size, but on the other, I am glad to not have to spread that much mulch. How's the garden coming? Oh yeah, and I built a rolling composter recently. I have to finish the stand for it, but I should have pics up soon. You'll appreciate it I'm sure. P~
I've managed to stick with just 6 yards for the past two years. I wasn't going to do any mulch this year, but between your pictures and the neighbors 2 doors down just putting theirs down, I couldn't resist. (I don't care about keeping up with the Joneses, but the way her silvery plants in the front just kind of "popped" with the dark mulch background put me over the edge!)
