I got the bug to sheet mulch around my side door and shed. I want to remove the stupid “deck” and put in a rain barrel and make a nicer seating area. I would also like to get a picnic table for outdoor dining and crafting.
Here are pics of cardboard and packing paper laid out on the ground before applying mulch. I wetted the paper/cardboard down to prevent it from flying away. Potted plants, pavers, and kid’s toys work well for holding down the cardboard. I also like to have a wheelbarrow of mulch handy for throwing handfuls on the cardboard to keep it in place.
I bought this sign from Beyond Pesticides because I got sick of the cute little frog signs my neighbors have warning that they have poured neurotoxins on their turf lawn.
