How to regain control of these mulch beds... *PICS*
These are two large areas of bushes and flowers in front of my house. They were mulched nicely when I bought the house last year, but almost all the mulch has broken down and weeds have taken over. I didn't know enough about landscape to take care of them at first. Now, I think I'm getting the hang of it, but the damage is done. My question is, what is the best way to clean these up. If it were just a few scattered dandelions, I would have no problem, but there is all sorts of things growing like grass. If I just use a grass killer, then how do I remove ALL the growths? Do I dig and sift the soil back into the pile? Remove the soil alltogether and replace it?
