Need help creating a mulch bed
I'm in the process of extending my existing mulch/flower bed out from my house. I don't want to use anything as the border so I would like to just trench around the edging to keep it nice and tight. The problem I'm having is that there is a near by (huge) tree that some of the roots are above ground heading right into my future mulch/flower bed. How should I go about trenching around the mulch bed when there are all these thick roots everywhere? When I say trenching, I mean basically digging a moat around the area so it seperates the mulch from the grass. I'm open to anything. thanks!
Maybe just run your trench line up to the root, and continue on the imaginary line on the other side of the root, repeat.... ?
Or you could cut the tree down, and have the stump/roots removed....
Actually I had a irrigation system put in so they ended up cutting the roots along the bed anyway as they ran the PVC. I then just used a mattock to pull up the roots that were exposed. It was a ton of work but I'm done and vow to never lift a mattock again. (I say that now but I forsee my wife asking me to transplant my azaleas next spring)
Thanks for the recommendations Kevin!
