Not a lot of woodworking going on at the moment. I’ve been clearing up some other things around the property as of late, chores that I had been less than timely in accomplishing.
Yes, that means I was slacking.
So although another project is in the works, I’ve been labouring under my old landscaping hat rather than the workshop one. An example:
I’ve laid a layer of cardboard under the mulch as a biodegradable (and cheap!) weed block. It’s pretty effective (and cheap!) at keeping the weeding down, which is good because I hate doing it. It also keeps my recycle bin from getting overwhelmed (and cheap!) with packaging. In the winter I could burn it, but in the summer that’s not so inviting. Just make sure to remove the plastic tape before you bury it because it doesn’t decompose and is a real mess later on.
