Fresh Mulch in the Yard

Our yard is freshly mulched!

We finally got mulch for our landscaping!  Take a peek at some of our fresh mulch!

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


Truck full of bagged black mulch!

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

This year we added a huge 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 just 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 do get our house sprayed for bugs (#loghomeproblems), so I want to keep it as neat & clear over there as possible.

We’re super late to the mulch game this year.  Last year, we mulched in April!  I was super hesitant this year because we had a huge mulch fiasco last year.  The mulch we bought was all dried out & even though we had several mulch layers going on throughout the years, tons of weeds were growing through it this year!  I didn’t have it in me to get another bad batch of mulch, so we waited a super long time this year.

Another thing holding us back from mulching our yard was the price.  Because I’m an overthinker, I calculated every possible way to get mulch at the best price.  I actually found that the bagged mulch (when it went on sale) was the cheapest option for us, so I just had to wait for the sale.  Last weekend it was finally on sale so we stocked up!  It’s a total pain to get bagged mulch, but I’m all about saving money!

We still have to mulch around the side of our property by our grape vines & apple trees, but it’s done for the most part!

I just love the look of fresh mulch!
