fresh mulch in our yard | on the creek blog // www.onthecreekblog.com
We finally got mulch for our landscaping!  Take a peek at some of our fresh mulch!

My husband & I took on a considerable project last weekend…

I always forget how much work it is to mulch our property.  I think that it will just take half a day at most & it will be done!  Spoiler:  it never happens that way!  It also doesn’t help that we add a new mulch feature to our land every year!

This year we added a massive area to the side of our house!  I could never figure out exactly what I wanted to do with that side of the house, so it was bare over there!  Last fall, my husband put more topsoil around that side & after walking on it with the dogs all winter, it became a muddy mess, so it was the perfect time to do something with it!  It’s getting mulched out for now & then, we’ll decide if/when we add any plants!  We get our house sprayed for bugs (#loghomeproblems), so I want to keep it as neat & clear over there as possible.

A review of all natural cleaners, plant based cleaning products. Products tested are the Method brand cleaners. | On The Creek Blog // www.onthecreekblog.com
An honest review of all natural cleaning products! I’ll tell you if they actually work as well as their toxic alternatives!

Note:  Method products are not included on the EPA-registered disinfectant list to use against COVID-19.

I want to start off by saying that this post is not sponsored in any way.  I was just super curious about more natural cleaning products & wanted to give them a try!

Natural cleaning products first came onto my radar after I started seeing other bloggers promoting a cleaning supply subscription service. I took a look around the website & became aware of a more natural alternative to cleaning products.

White lilac // spring yard walk | On The Creek Blog
Come with me as I look over the various plants in our yard & see how they're doing after the winter!

Does anyone else hold an annual address for the state of their yard plants?

Like intentionally walking around their yard, looking at all of their trees/plants to see how they've held up after the winter?

I think it's my new favorite yearly activity!  It's so cool to see all the perennial goodness!

Today, I'll be taking you along for the walk!
