The Lazy Gardener mulches - heavily

A heavy layer of leaf or seedless hay mulch is very good for your garden. Heavy means a good two inches of hay mulch “slabs,” or a good inch of partially rotted leaves. Mulch is the organic gardener’s friend too:
Maintains consistent moisture (less watering)
Reduces weeds (less weeding)
Reduces erosion (good for the soil)
Breaks down, adding fertility (also good for the soil)

This is how thick I apply marsh hay mulch. Compared to my neighboring plots (look just behind my plot) I have no weeds and I haven't weeded yet this spring!)

  1. Before the Ogden memo there were only 12 marijuana dispensaries in the state of Colorado. After the Ogden memo, the number of dispensaries increase to over 800 through out the state of Colorado. craft canabis
