Newspaper in the flower beds
I am a weekend warrior! This weekend, I mulched along both sides of our modest driveway, around the side of our house, and three large flower beds. It took me three days and a lot of muscle to complete, but I feel quite satisfied with the results. Instead of pulling up every single weed (I pulled up most) that had popped up last week during the thaw, I placed newspaper over the flower bed, leaving the flowers exposed, and mulched over the top of that. It is very rewarding to look at and (hopefully) the weeds won't sprout again! I'd love to post photos, but am still experiencing the photo upload issue.
I changed browsers and solved the photo upload issue.
