Thank you to everyone who participated and made Contra Costa's first 350 Home & Garden Challenge an amazing success. We nearly tripled our goal of 350 actions - there were 974 actions registered!
At my own house, I decided to try sheet-mulching where we had out-of-control weeds. It was my mother's day present to myself...husband Trent didn't want "anything to do with it" since he didn't know what to expect. Using the simple steps and video from Kat Weiss and Jillian Steinberger, I felt confident to go for it....
WOW - what a difference! They say those weeds that were there before are gone for good. I skimped on the cardboard in a few areas (I had 4000 square feet to cover and I could only make so many "cardboard shopping" trips to Costco) and have pulled three little weeds since Mother's Day.
Sheet-mulching was a great decision for our yard!
It looks great, Tina! Everyone should try sheet mulching.
