    Just got done shoveling about 2 1/2 yards of mixed soil out of the pickup to form the flower beds in the much neglected yard. We bought the house last summer and just now are being able to do something nice to it. After raking a ton of pine needles after moving in, we've since got the grass to come back fairly strong, but there was much to be desired. Cut down a dead tree the other day and ground out a few stumps. Got to go get another couple yards of dirt in the morning, do plants over the next couple of days, then it's back to get about 4-5 yards of mulch. Uhh I hate yard work.

    Preen Weed Preventer will be your new best friend. ;) After the flowers are planted, sprinkle it all over the flower beds. It prevents the weed seeds from germinating so you don't spend all summer pulling weeds in the flowerbeds. :cool1: You'll find it in big yellow plastic jugs on the shelf near the other weed killer prodcuts.
