Actually it was started last fall when we sprayed Round Up on it and moved Lisa’s whatchamacallits out there around the birdhouse. This year all I was waiting on was a calm day for the wind so I could lay the black tarp and trim it to size, then put the mulch down.
This morning I looked out the window and saw we had like a 2 mph wind, so I got busy. Naturally, as soon as I got the tarps down, the winds picked up and I no longer had tarps – they became kites. No matter, after I retrieved them I weighted that shit down and went to work.
It’s a hell of an improvement. When I get paid in a couple weeks I’ll buy some cedar fence poles and lay them around the edges for a frame. I think it’ll look real nice with that. Lisa’s wanting to plant flowers in the wheelbarrow and in pots that will be scattered around it.
Now if the yard will only green the rest of the way up and fill in…..
