In all honesty is didn't always look like this.. it was more of a 3 foot tall jungle of weeds that M pretty much tackled single handed when we moved in. We went through bottles of weed killer, vinegar solutions, hot water suggestions we found online but nothing stopped the mutant weeds from coming back.. so every other weekend M wasted away hours trying to control our backyard. We may not have hated doing it so much and may have found a better solution for the space if we ever used it, but we didn't. There was no way to get to the space without leaving the house and going around the house to get to it, it lacked privacy and most importantly we didn't/don't see ourselves living here for a long time..
So we cut it all down and lay down some tarp.. and placed a few rocks to keep the tarp down.. when we ran out of rocks we filled our milk containers with water and used them as weights.. I know what you're thinking and it rhymes with Right Rash.. I know.. :(
Finally we decided, enough of this right rash backyard.. Me made a trip to the Home Depot and loaded up on what we though was all we would need to fix our problem..but we very soon realized that one trip just wasn't going to cut it
so we made another trip
and another trip
and a few more trips..
Approximately 1000 square feet.. 3 rolls of tarp, 60 bags of marble chips and 6 bags of mulch later..
It was a days job.. but took us two (our little helper wasn't helping) and cost us $350.
