Spring Cleaning Outdoors7:04 PM
I started spring yard clean up over a month ago, but didn't get around to mulching until yesterday and today. Within the past 2 weeks, nearly every tree in my yard has burst back to life with beautiful spring green leaves. It makes such a difference in how the outdoors feels and provides so much privacy. Not just my own trees but my neighbor's trees too.
The grass still looks like death, but whatever. I was trying to go organic and avoid the use of chemicals on the weeds. I put down corn gluten meal which is a pre-emergent, so I am hoping it fights the summer weeds. But I started pulling the existing weeds by hand and as I got down on the ground, I realized it was pretty much all weeds. So that's kind of throwing a wrench in my organic plan. I feel really tempted to just spray them, but then again, that hasn't ever been that effective either.
For now, I think the other plants are being nice to me since the grass is so merciless.
