Spreading mulch is an overwhelming project when tackled alone. Bring in a tractor with a loader and a couple friends and an afternoon of sweat equity yields beautiful results.
Twelve yards is a lot, but not enough to cover the house, garden shed, and chicken coop beds, plus trees, vegetable garden fence line, and barn plantings. Four more yards are on order!
Next chore: getting out the spade and trimmer to cut in those crisp edges. I suppose we should have done that first, but I couldn’t resist the immediate transformation of fresh mulch.
