In preparation of placing our home on the market we have been cleaning up outside and making things look nice and pretty. Can I just say that I don't ever want to see another sliver of mulch again?
We had 5 yards of hardwood mulch delivered to our house so that we could spruce up the flower beds and all that good stuff. For those of us, myself included, that have a hard time visualizing what that means....it's a lot. It is like one side of a 2 car driveway...piled about as high as a 1 yr old.
Me and my trusty shovel and wheelbarrow then proceeded to take load after load all over the yard and spread it out in the appropriate places. It was really hot out. I sweated. (Is that a word?) Towards the end of the pile I had to call in the troops. Kids had to come out and spread the mulch so I could then move it much faster.
I have to say that it does look tons better. Does it look good enuf to reel in a buyer? Heck yeah. Will it happen? I dunno. And I am glad that we have a landscape recycling center near our home so that we could utilize recycled products. It always makes me sleep a little better at night knowing that I have made a green choice.
