Assistance please---My Mulching Plan
planted a row of 16 four feet tall arborvitae trees in mid October. Just given 4 free bales of hay (of unknown origin) and thought I would apply it around the trees. Come early spring, ! plan to cover the straw with layers of newspaper and top it off wood chips.
Don't have wood chips now--- thus, this temporary mulch plan for the arborvitae trees to help them through the winter.
Am very concerned since know that hay has seeds which result in weeds. However thought I would address any weeds situation with covering the hay with layers of newspaper and wood chips in early spring.
Your thoughts and advice are deeply appreciated!!!!!!!
