At a Homeowners Association meeting, people were talking about "keeping up the look" of our subdivision. Someone asked "what about the Mulch House?" I thought to myself, "what is a mulch house"? And then, it dawned on me, "that's MY house!" Hence the name "Mulch Manor Farm", which is much more elegant than "the mulch house", don't you think?

The bottom picture is my yard three months after the work was done. Cardboard was laid down to kill the grass, then good, nutrient-rich soil. The workers cut out the cardboard to plant each plant, and then THREE truck loads of mulch were spread. Back in March, the plants were tiny, and the mulch certainly dominated the scene.
