Make hay while the sun shines right? Well, we decided to mulch this sunny weekend. Its not like a complicated job, just very painful for the back and knees.
Our backyard is filled with grass, concrete and weeds and I just couldn't bear the stupid weeds anymore. Weeds were suchhhh a pain in the ass and there are many ways to take care of them. Flaming them is one way, but seriously who wants to put a flame burner thing in my hands huh? Some other ways include using a chemical weed killer, but I really don't want to use unnecessary chemicals that could affect my future plants. I could also use rubber mulch (inorganic mulch) for long term solutions but it doesn't slooowly decompose into good usable soil like organic mulch does. My ultimate choice = organic mulch over a layer of plastic weed barrier cloth. This choice of cloth allows water to penetrate (an important thing if you don't want to cause water logging). The barrier doesn't allow sun to penetrate thus killing the weeds.
Overall, after the work, I think I still prefer mulching over weeding. Both cause backpain but mulch looks so much better, dont'cha think?
