now to get the back garden mulched by next Monday when I have 5 Master Gardeners coming to use my yard as practice for our Florida Backyard recognition Program I have become involved in.
LOL I could always leave a few weeds and things just to test them

Great job on the flower beds, Karla. I can't wait to begin in my own yard, we are still looking for a house and are in a rental. I plan on planting in large pots so I can relocate them also.

I would use another ground cover that close to the house, pebbles maybe. The wood mulch attracts termites and is best used away from the house.
