The Finished Product

I am building a new garden bed on the East side of the property, which is currently planted with Day-Lillies, a shade loving grass, and two types of Hostas. In the area that is mostly planted the way I want, I added a top layer of newspaper (to keep weeds down) and some of my rough quality compost that I make in the wooden bins. The picture is of the finished product. This stuff is really more of a slowly biodegradeable mulch, with some completely broken down humus, and plenty of matierials which will continue to decompose in place. As is evident, the Spruce cones and needles take a while to break down, but within two years those seen here will be completely gone.
