Garden before mulchGarden after MulchAfter the  trees on one of our leased paddocks were trimmed, we ended up with a huge pile of pine mulch that had been through a chipper. We have already given away a few trailer loads, and are finally getting around to using some ourselves. The idea it will keep the weeds at bay as well as retaining moisture. It looks really tidy once it is on as well. The only problem is the weeding that needs to be done before hand. I have put on some before and after photos from a bit of the garden I did yesterday. And no Mum, I didn’t just chuck it over the the top of the weeds! I put some compost around the roses after weeding and then a thick layer of mulch.
