What's Next Outside

Now that the garden is planted, the = dahlia bulbs are planted and my flower seeds are planted, it's time to move on to cosmetic yard work. Like the garden fence:

In the back garden we need to remove the snow-damaged deer netting and trim all those weeds around the low chicken wire fencing. We'll put fresh deer netting up to keep out the critters. We also need to repair the fencing and netting on the gate... and also fix the fence posts a bit too since they are sagging over time. I also need to spend some serious time weeding the pebble garden paths with a hand rake (it's an excellent arm workout...).

Then there's this...

3 cubic yards of mulch we had delivered that needs to be spread across all the different beds. It's going to be a lot of work to get through all of this, but I think we'll need it all. As we've added more garden beds and widened existing ones, we've been stretching our mulch supply these past couple of years. Fudging the layer thickness is really starting to show - we've had a lot of mulch erosion everywhere and now the weeds are trying to take over. It was time for a bulk delivery... honestly I'm curious to see how far this will go... will I even have enough?
