Goodbye Pine Needles!

In the Carolinas, the majority of people cover their flower beds with bales of pine needles. After growing up in a state that mulches flower beds, I think pine needles are ugly! While Justin mowed the grass this morning, I raked the old and ugly pine needles off our main front flower bed. Justin and his brother, Jordan, got me a load of topsoil that I spread on the clay-soil bed with my little neighbor, Jermaine. While I was spreading that, they went and got me 2 yds. of MULCH!!! We worked at spreading that this afternoon. My plants and shrubs look so beautiful now!

Thanks for your help, Jordan!
