On about an acre. Mature woods on two sides. Have established major ground cover beds over the years, pachysandra.

Faced with severe drought this year. Lost most of one large bed. This bed is on a wooded side, natural forest.

I just let it go and put leaf mulch over it this past week.

Fight is out of the dog and I actually feel good about it.

The more I learn about gardening the more I like to keep things indigenous. Going back to nature..

I think that natural looks fine most of the time. Here in the south, pine straw covers the ground in many yards and it looks fine.

If you get unsightly weeds, just hit them with weed killer once in awhile, until the natural mulch is deep enough to smother them.
