Mulching the orchard (part 1)

Donkey manure and newspapers

We have a small orchard that consists of various fruit trees. The grass was about 2 feet tall, so we decided to mulch around the trees.

Papers and grass on top

I strimmed the area around the trees with a blade, NOT  TWINE!. The blade keeps the grass intact, whereas twine would blast it to smithereens!. Move the grass to one side and lay down newspapers on the ground around the trees. Then cover the papers with the strimmed grass.

Getting there!

Lettie in charge, checkin we aint slackin!

1st row done!, ready for next step
