A Different Kind of Mulch

I am in search of piles and piles and piles of newspapers and struck out today.  But I may get through to somebody at The Day who can help me out tomorrow.

In the meantime, I've begun "mulching" the Japanese Garden.  I'm using stone as mulch here instead of shredded pine bark.  And beneath the stone, there will be no newsprint.  Just landscape fabric.

This garden looks so tiny, doesn't it?  It IS rather small until you have to work on it.

This photo was shot from a balcony off the second floor  From up there, the big boulder looks like a pebble.

  1. I have tons of newspaper. I plan to use beneath the mulch this yard rather than landscape fabric and I use it in my compost bin. I think the newspaper is a better weed barrier, and I like the fact that it helps fertilize the soil. Hope you get lucky with the newspaper. I ask co-workers and neighbors to save theirs for me. I end up with more than I can use.
