Paper Bag Mulching

We saved most of the Purina Feed bags over the winter so we could use them as mulch this summer. I like paper bag mulching over the landscape fabric because neither one lasts forever, and paper bags are much easier to till in when we are ready for another layer of weed blocker.

About 9 feed bags cut open and laid on top of the weeds. Hubby cut the weeds, but we didn’t till or use weed killer on them. The bags are about 3 grocery bags thick, they shouldn’t have any trouble killing the weeds.

Covered with 9 bags of mulch. Ten bags would have been a little better. It was more mulch than Hubby thought we would need, but it should keep the weeds down for 3-5 years as well as reduce the water we need on the nectarine trees.

I still need to sweep the basketball court off, but every day we get a little closer to getting the yard all cleaned up and ready for summer.

Oh, wait… summer’s here. Sheesh! Well, we’ll keep working at it and one year our yard will be beautiful!
