Darn squirrels digging divots in my mulch!
Every day I have to kick the mulch back over the holes the varmints dig. There AIN'T no nuts in my gardens, dumb squirrels! What can I do to keep them from digging up my mulch?
'Nother question: To keep the idiot "landscape workers" from busting holes in my decorative edging fences, I have determined that digging a 4" wide moat x 4" deep on the outside of the decorative edging and filling it with something would give a buffer around the edging, so they would not knick and puncture my edging. My choices of fill for the moat are mulch and pea gravel. I think the dumb squirrels would dig up the moats if I used mulch. Would pea gravel work well, or would it invite weeds? I would also tap in one of those lawn edging products that only stick up an inch or so, on the side of the moat opposite the decorative edging.
