Over at ANC Kevin’s site is an announcement that free mulch is available near 5th & P. I’ve already grabbed some, and will probably grab some more later this week.
I’m not taking it for my yard, but for the vacant property near me. My street has a reputation to uphold for cute yards. Though I can’t do too much about the occupied houses with people who don’t do anything with their fronts, I can take control over one yard. What I figure I can do is chop up the weeds, lay down some newspaper or thick cardboard, wet it, then cover it with the mulch. I will leave some open spots to plant day lilies and other items that I’m moving out of my own garden.
Maybe if there is mulch left and if I haven’t thrown out my back and if I still have the energy, I might try to talk one of the neighbors into letting me do their yard.
