Mulching and Composting Can Change Your Landscape
Subconsciously, I knew that, but I did not know it would raise my yard a foot higher than my neighbor's. :-D
Ten years ago I was a frequent poster on this forum. I had been composting and mulching prior to joining the Gardenweb. But I became an avid leaf bag snatcher after discovering this forum.
Every fall, I would dump bag after bag of leaves in my yard and every spring and summer, I would dump van loads of horse manure & horse bedding on top of the leaf mold. I have also been composting in situ, meaning burying kitchen scraps wherever I can find a spot to dig.
Guess what? Last week, DH told me after visiting my next door neighbor that our backyard is a foot higher than the neighbor's. Is it against the city's ordinance to raise your yard above your neighbors'? LOL. Not that I would change my habits. 5555 (FYI: 5 in Thai is "Ha")
Three cheers to mulching and composting.
