Admittingly I can be lazy. Lazy in the sense of garden grunting. Last year when I worked to remove all the grass along the foundation for our planting beds….I failed to install the mulch in a timely manner. And this is what I’ve got now:
Grass is sprouting up almost everywhere! I’ve already done my do-diligence and spread PREEN throughout the ENTIRE landscape, but now I’ll have to work extra hard to get those pesky grass roots out. I will most likely resort to round-up. But what’s a girl to do!?! The fresh layer of mulch planned for the weeks coming will not be enough to naturally choke them out!
Alas, I have learned my lesson. And this new planting bed formed in hopes of creating a living Fort Knox, will not fall to prey the same grass blade. Even if I have to make my husband do it!
How do you prepare your garden plots? I might use newspaper next time.
Happy Planting Folks! And get your mulch down!
