We had an incredible long weekend with awesome weather, so I was able to get out and tackle the extra greenery that wasn’t really invited to our garden plot.
Our side yard looked like this…
Yes, I hang my head in shame.
But it looks worse than it really was. These party crashers seriously seemed to pop up overnight!
They look pretty in this photo, but trust me, they are not your friend!
These pretty weeds (what are they anyway?) cover the ground like a floral carpet, and before you know it, you’ve got wall-to-wall!
Well, not anymore.
Now our side yard looks like this!
Two heaping wheel barrels and this mini load later.
I know. Crazy!
And to keep the weeds down, Lush Eco Lawns will be replenishing our bark mulch with a very, very thick layer. I’d call that ripping out the carpet and replacing it with hardwood instead!
How about you, are you battling the first weeds of the season? What are your weed control strategies??
Thanks for stopping by!
