Mulch and a Backyard Makeover

Mulch and a Backyard Makeover

May 6, 2008

In the process of cleaning up and redoing our backyard, the amount of garden debris that we've collected has far outrun our weekly curbside composting pickup. In a recent dead tree branch and overgrown bush ambush, we were overwhelmed by the pile of branches that we amassed and had visions of spending nights sneaking our green piles in to the neighbors' bins for the next few years...lucky for us, we found a better solution. See pictures below the jump...

After clearing out the overgrown area, we rented a wood chipper and turned our pile of branches in to fantastic backyard mulch!

So far, we've used the mulch when planting new trees, as a layer for weed control, for landscaping and to enrich the soil in areas where we'll eventually want to plant.

We're on to round 2 next weekend and already have the next batch of branches ready and waiting...
