Mulching can be a total bitch. Especially if you have a ton of bags. This is common knowledge.
So when I decided to mulch the entire area of my garden, I knew I would be cussing quite a bit. This is because I despise carrying and shaking the big ass bag.
I always end up with a big pile, then a trail, then another pile, then sprinkles of mulch, and then I have to try and get the rest out of the bottom of the bag.
So I tried something and mulching went so much easier. Now I don’t dread the 12 other bags I have waiting on me.
I’m sure master gardeners and landscapers have plenty of hacks and easier ways to lay mulch. But I’m neither of those.
So this is for those who piddle with gardening, have little to no expertise, and hate laying mulch.
Lay the bag flat. Cut across the top of the bag in the middle.
Make sure and cut the sides too.
Simply put your hands under the bag where you cut it, and lift straight up.
Then just the bottom of the bag.
BOOM! Now you have 2 smaller bags. Easier to move. Easier to spread. Less cursing.
