Anyone ever use old carpet to cover weedy areas?
When I came home from work, I noticed one of the apartments across from my house was having new carpet installed. I asked what they were going to do with the old stuff; they said toss it in the landfill. I asked if I could have it to cover the weeds in the backyard and they said "sure" but backed away from the nutty lady.
I dragged it home and the backyard (which no one sees) looks like a patchwork quilt of carpet (which, to be honest, looks better than what I have inside my house).
