Happy Monday morning to you! I feel like I've been away so long! While I thoroughly enjoyed having my AZ bff come to town and spending some time away from the computer, I did miss sharing with you all. Fortunately, Deb is a little dynamo. She loves tackling projects and never shrinks away from a little manual labor. In addition to other projects, she helped me do a little landscaping work in our front yard that had me saying, "Ah, that's mulch better!"
1. With the bricks lining the bed, the mulch is going to flow into the grass with the first rainstorm we have.
2. The wind will blow the wood chips into the yard.
3. How will we clean up the trimmings from the bushes without picking up and/or mixing with the mulch?
4. Not worth the expense/waste of money.
So, where was hubby during all this work? He was at a work meeting for the evening. When I went to pick him up, I told him we had been working on a project in the front yard. "You got mulch, didn't you," he said. "Maybe," I replied, "you'll just have to see for yourself." I'm happy to report that hubby was pleasantly surprised at the transformation and at the price tag. Have you ever gone ahead with a project that your spouse was less than enthusiastic about? What were the results? By the way, do you know how to clean out the trimmings of bushes from mulch? Just curious...
