Mountain of mulch

When the kids got bored with the pool on Saturday, they moved on to the mountain of mulch that had been dumped on our back driveway.  I may have slightly overestimated the amount we needed. :op  It was free stuff from the city yard waste site with a small delivery fee.  I started Friday afternoon, and it took both Austin & I until late Saturday afternoon to spread 12 cubic yards around the garden, play set and house.

The original pile was as wide as the driveway and taller than me.  The pool water didn't stay very clean. :op
Finally finished!  Because of the shade, you can't appreciate everything under the play set, bushes and beyond.  The new mulch is 6-12" thick with an 18" berm along the alley. :o)
