You have got to love the smell of spring, fresh mulch and cut grass.

wow that looks very nice and clean lookin!

i was using bark nuggets last year but this year im using all hardwood mulch over everything. I really like the smell of it and it seems to stay in place better.

I still have lots of places to put it down, i hope to get some more done this long weekend...

your place looks really good!

Very neat and tidy. I have nothing even vaguely resembling neat and tidy in my yard so I admire people who can achieve that look Wink

I love the smell of the shredded cedar mulch I use but I have never cared for the smell of fresh cut grass.

Thanks everyone, I have learned over the years the black mulch does a good job of preventing weeds in my landscape, and it breaks down and makes a very rich soil which I can plant my annuals directly into. The black mulch has coal dust mixed into it that gives it the jet black color which does not fade out like other colors.

OMG there's not a single teeny,tiny weed to be seen anywhere!! Shocked Puts my garden to shame as it's never been as neat as yours. I love the smell of fresh mulch and newly cut grass too and could sit in that rocking chair and drink in the scents and sights of your garden all day long. Stew Face 1

All looks so fresh and healthy! I'm smelled spring a few times within the past two weeks, but here it smells like pine trees. Our grass is just starting to green up, and I saw my daylilies poking through. Yeah!

Doyle, your yard and beds are so neat and tidy. I don't think if I have ever seen the black mulch. I have always used the pine bark nuggets, which I don't really care for. Cheap and fades! Neutral

That yard's just too good-looking to be real. I shall have to pay you a visit and check it out. Laughing

On a serious note you've done very well. We won't be cutting grass for another month or more, but we're hard at work with the mulching.

You can fight over the chair, I prefer the grass. Mr. Green
