Well, I decided to mulch. Since I have never done this before, I was not quite sure how much I needed. On our fun-filled trip to Walmart today, I picked up two huge bags of the cheapest stuff I could find. I thought that surely that would be enough. It only covered about half of the area and I spread it as thin as I could. So I won't be showing you any pics of my finished project anytime soon. Oh well, I had plenty of time to mow the back lawn this afternoon. On Thursday I can toss some weed 'n feed stuff on it and watch those dandelions suffer.
