Husband Pieter did haul many loads of Pallet Mulch for using in our garden. That is excellent for water holding capacity and it looks neat. It will keep the weeds down somewhat, but not entirely of course. Going green pays off! Are you using some Pallet Mulch too?
Photo is from June 26, with a happy rose! It looks very nice with this contrasting color.
Pallet Mulch often is used in hotel gardens or around corporate office buildings.
Here you clearly see the natural soil and the Pallet Mulch with its reddish color.
These are our roses, they look pitiful but it is tough in such a hot climate for growing roses at all.
Probably in the fall they will come back and grow a bit more.
Some Crinum lilies are benefiting from the Pallet Mulch as well.
They seem to be far better heat resistant!
