Mulch, mulch and more mulch

It's here! Oh my! I forgot what 20 yards of mulch looks like!
But the beds will look so nice again. Plus will help with watering less often.
And the pile begins.
No we did not get a man in the deal to help us! Upper right corner. Neighbor painting the house next door. lol. But it sure looks like he is climbing out of the pile! lol.
And he made it out!
The difference between the bare ground and where we mulched. The plants really stand out now.
The little girl seems to be saying....you missed a spot! There is bare ground here yet! O.K., O.K. little girl we filled it in. She was our supervisor!
20 yards of mulch delivered friday morning. I worked on it about 2 1/2 hours before I went to work. Jeff worked on it about 5 hours after work. We both worked on it from 9:30am-6:00 pm on saturday. Done! Just in time for it to rain! Plus it rained all day on sunday. Whew was glad to get it done. Now the beds look so nice again.  It was suppose to rain all day on sat. but we were blessed with a beautiful, very sunny day!  We could have actually used a yard or 2 more to do the front bed. It will have to wait until next year. Mulch isn't as low in that bed. I hope every one of you had a great weekend also. Hugs, Teresa

  1. Oh- I hit something and my whole comment disappeared. I HATE when that happens! Anyway- I said your gardens look wonderful. It was worth all the hard work. How funny about the neighbor-he does look like he was buried. MyHero is NOT into outdoor chores so it falls to me...and I badly need to get some mulch delivered soon! xo Diana

  2. When I have finished the weeding and the planting of the spring bulbs I will order lots of mulch too. You are right about the water conservation - and it also means less weeds come through and they are easier to remove. Himself will not be well enough to help spread it though, so it will be my job.

  3. Always a fresh look when a good layer of mulch is spread..Now the real fun begins..planting and playing! Happy gardening to you. Arrived home from Arizona to cool temperatures..I think I'll postpone playing in my garden.
