Edged and mulched today
Finally. I really love the deep trench edging, but the weeds were driving me nuts this year. All I did was hoe weeds every couple of weeks. So, after two years of not mulching I laid down a layer of hardwood. It took 11 bags! I laid it THICK. Sure looks nice. I don't put it in the beds themselves I use shredded leaves in the Spring and Fall.
Now the problem will be keeping the grass from the lawn out of the mulched areas. That's what I liked about the trenching, you could just cut run the lawnmower across the edges and cut it off. Hopefully it's still deep enough that I can do that without throwing all the mulch out.
Boy was that sun hot, 84 but not much humidity thank goodness. So glad that job is done.
