Mulch alternatives under trees
Been in my new home 6 months. The yard has lots of big, mature deciduous trees. In their lifetime they received lots of water for grass originally planted beneath and the tree roots in some places are above ground. Grass is gone and now it's hardpacked dirt. Want to mulch with something that won't be blown away by a leafblower to be used each fall for mounds of leaves! What would be a good stable mulch? I don't plan to plant under the trees.
