Yesterday we helped a neighbor in need.
Our next door neighbors are getting ready to put their house on the market, so they ordered 12 yards of beauty bark. I took a look at the two of them valiantly trying to move that mountain from their front driveway, to their back yard - with just a little wheelbarrow. I told Steve we needed to go help them - we grabbed Nathan and Daniel (and our larger wheelbarrow) and offered our services.
Many hands may make light work, but my shoulders are a little sore today.
After they had finished all of their yard, they still have about 1/3 of it left. Today I got a little ambitious and weeded our front flower beds - and then had Alex and Nathan help me spread some of their leftover beauty bark in our yard.
It's too bad the bark only looks really good for a few days. Here's hoping it keeps the weeds down longer than that.
