You did a good job in a tough situation. In general don't plant so close to the building. And, won't all that mulch wash down with rains?

It did wash down some after a big storm we had and I went back and loaded the top down with some more and its done decent since. I was pushing for a retaining wall but that was out of their budget so I just had to make do with what I could.

Too bad they couldn't sod too.... grass looks like crap. The mulching looks good though. Good job, the grass isn't your fault.

I just use the brown bed for all the edges. The runoff on the hill has become a slight problem and on the initial estimate he wanted to go without a retaining wall to save on costs but now is condsidering want to prevent runoff and other problems. Sod to come in the near future as well.

What part of Tn. are you from? The mulch looks like pretty good stuff.
I was down at Tn National golf course(30 mins south of Knoxville) this past spring for the Women's SEC'S championship. I believe they have the best looking mulch I have ever seen. The superindent said it was ground up pallets with color.......
