What else happens when you have a large shady tree for years and it suddenly goes away? You get weeds in your garden. Weeds you’ve never ever seen in your yard before. With random species of bugs attached to them. 😐
…. But… if you’re lucky, you finally get a weekend to yourself to clean it all up. And so I did. 🙂
Here’s what I started with — weeds galore. My entire garden looked like this. (This patch still does look like this, because… I ran out of mulch… and energy. So… I will take care of it next weekend.)
Hours after a lot of lawn mowing, weed pulling, grass killing, bug chasing, garden fabric laying, cat meowing, dog walking, and black mulch mulching… VOILA!
