Those of you who don't come by here don't know, but until recently I had a rather ratty yard. My kids like to run on the grass in the winter when it is cold and muddy…killing it. There was a huge swath of not-green across the yard.
Then, a neighbor kindly gave me a few square tiles. I bought a few more at Wal-Mart and set up a path where the muddy swath was. I thought of putting down grass, but my friend who mows my lawn suggested mulch.
Mulch is very cheap and comes in colors.
So, I now have a lovely looking yard. Black mulch along the path. Red on the area by the house that has some flowers plus around the Red maple. The yard looks snazzy.
All for about $20.00
