Curb Alert

Our kids loved seeing this big Daddy roll up. We all watched in amazement as this truck delivered 4 cubic yards of triple shredded mulch. Now that's what we call a good time. 


Get ready!


Here it comes!


Okay that probably wasn't as exciting as it was to our kids when they watched it getting dumped in our front yard. Oh well.  Having this much mulch delivered at once, meant it was going to be a long day for Joe to get it off our lawn before it burned up our grass.


So Joe spent the day spreading it out over this area on our front hill.


He had a little helper spread it. During the mulch spreading process, Joe decided it was a good idea to transplant these Iris's from our garden (to free up useful food growing space.)


Here's a little section of spread mulch. Doesn't it make such a difference in color on the ground? The dark mulch looks so nice under the green plants.


The hill is finally mulched over. It's making a big difference in water retention for the plants on our hill and in our garden.


Here's another view of our hill.  We could definitely use some landscaping advice on plant placement.  We may be transplanting some of them in the future.


Forgot to mention that I spent a whole day weeding out this hill before the mulch went down. The mulch will help keep down the weeds too. A big +!
