I have many areas around the house that are suppossed to be the yard. However, being fresh cut forest, the wild field plants have taken over. I plan to turn these wild plants and excess of trees into mulch. The majority of our lot is wooded, so I don’t feel too bad having so cut areas.
I will turn it all to mulch through chop and drop composting. All I did was chop the plants I didn’t want and strategically drop the clippings around the plants I want to keep. Mist of the time, the furthest I went to drop was a couple steps from where I chopped. Easy. Lazy. Perfect.
This is the same area after I chopped a bunch down and made a mulched bed out of the choppings. The beds here are around oak and hazelnuts trees. You will also notice that when an area gets cleared, toys magically appear.
