To try to keep the soil moist and stop the weeds taking over, it was time to mulch the garden again. This time instead of expensive Tea Tree bark, I'm using sugar cane mulch. It doesn't look as good but hopefully it will do the job. It is relatively easy to lay it down.
I had thirty bales delivered. It is packed in layers
which are easy to carry
and then pull apart and spread that is a bit tough on the old back.
Just a few hours for a few days and it was done. That is the back yard now the front needs doing.
The plants like it to keep their roots cool and moist.
The magpie watched and it can still find insects to eat.
The wallaby doesn't mind he can still find juicy leaves to eat.
The Brush Turkey is not so sure. It finds it harder to dig up the ground looking for whatever. So it tries the pot plant?
