My friend the lovely Smiley Nyree took me on an excursion the other day to a picket fence making factory in a neighbouring suburb. And we came back with a ute-load of sawdust. For free! I have been wondering for months and months what to do with those nasty weedy spots in my garden since embarking on the de-grassing project. I contemplated all different sorts of mulch and paving and hadn't gotten 'round to doing anything 'cos it all involved effort and money and research. But Smiley Nyree and local industry saved the day.
And now I feel like one of those recipients of Backyard Blitz or 30 Minute Makeover. But without all the crew and trucks and cameras and snotty hankies.
