As much as I dislike mulch maintenance I dislike weeding even more. Today I turned and remulched everything that needed it except my herb bed. That is going to be a separate project, next weekend. It will probably also involve repainting rocks.
The previous owners left about six or seven rocks that were painted white in various areas in the front in back yards, after almost ten years it’s time to repaint them. Nothing looks worse that a peeling rock….except maybe the stairs on our front porch. We actually scraped, sanded, primed and repainted the porch and stairs about 7 years ago. It all promptly started to peel three months later!
This year we are going to try again using different products.
