You like?? I'm thinking... a sofa, a few throw pillows and it will be real purty!
Okay, so it isn't carpet, and by now I was hoping this project would be done and I could show you the fabulous finished effect. This is actually weed barrier that goes down before the mulch to
It's a bit of a pain to put it down around the shrubs, cutting holes for the plant base and tacking the remainder back together, but I am "converting" an existing patch of grass next to the river bed into an extension of the shrub bed, so it's necessary.
I also laid down some left over pavers from another project to get from the bridge to the gate into the backyard.
So how far did I get with the mulching part of this project?? Starting from the far (far, far) corner, past the bridge,
I only got to the bridge before days of rain soaked the lawn. I later hosed the mulch off of the steps so they look better.
And since I am moving massive loads of mulch with the pickup truck, I need to wait until the lawn can handle the weight being driven over it.
I'm beginning to think this project is going to be a bit like painting the Golden Gate Bridge. By the time I get all the the mulch spread around, the first loads will have decomposed and it will be time go back to add another layer!
