Or also known as “Ohh my aching back”. After all the new construction last spring, a number of new garden walkways were created. I was out of steam (and had already spent enough money), so I left the spaces between the beds and around the perimeter as bare dirt. With the recent rains, the walkways were getting pretty muddy and the weeds were getting off to a fast start. So, with an 18% off coupon and a weekend that was dry, partly sunny, and not too nice to be booked with fun family activities, I decided it was time to take knock this off task off the list.
After some calculations, it looked like 2 tons of Small River Rock from the local mulch/landscape provided should do it.
In the end, the job took about 2 hours to complete. Having someone in the garden helping make the job go a lot quicker.
