  • The romance of mulch

    I know, many of you would think that a trailer load of mulch is not a very romantic present from your husband on your 46th birthday…but I absolutely love it.  
    We missed our window of opportunity to get mulch down in our big perennial beds last spring so Andy was motivated by my birthday to get it done in 2015.  
    It looks great (until the chickens show up and do their scratching- oh well).
    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.
