Mulch Paths: So Easy to Walk On

20150126Gardeners rarely think about it, but mulches, such as cedar mulch, forest mulch, rameal chipped wood, or pine needle mulch, make excellent coverings for a garden or forest path. They are inexpensive and easy on the foot, giving a sort of spongy feeling as you walk, plus they drain well so you won’t be walking in mud. They also smother weeds and help keep them from sprouting. If you ever see that weeds begin to germinate, a sign that the mulch has become too thin over time, so simply add fresh mulch over the aging one. Simple, isn’t it?
