Do you use mulch in your flower beds? If Yes, what type?
Black Kow compost manure, chips from twigs out of the chipper, leaf mould.
No ! Only thing that stuff is good for is to give Texas bugs a place to hide !
I use Texas Red Cedar mulch, bugs do not seem to like it, it smells great.
Yes, any suitable mulching material that I have to hand, but no plastic or cardboard.
I use anything I can find: coffee grounds, leaf mould, partially decomposed compost,pine needles, etc. In the veggie garden, I pull the weeds (& if they are seed-free), lay them down on the soil as mulch. Not pretty but it does hold in the moisture and they eventually decompose.
I have a few types available and prefer leaves and pine straw. Very few weeds in pine straw so there is that.
