Sheet Composting or homemade slip-n-slide?
Preparation continues at my house, this time sheet composting the south-facing side yard. The back half shown here is usually a soggy mess due to shade from three large rhodies. We mowed the lawn as short as possible, laid down refrigerator boxes nabbed from a local appliance store and piled several inches of chip mulch from the diminishing pile in our driveway. I didn't add compost since I think left long enough the grass will break down eventually. I'll add that this was less than two hours before guests arrived for my monthly "Women Unite" party. It's now looking neat and tidy but I long for pops of color. At least the dogs are happy _ they think they're at the dog park.
