We've all got warmer weather and yard work on the brain right now, right? Let's save some time and money this Spring as we prepare our flower beds.

I've been holding onto this pin for awhile now, and I am finally gonna try it out this year as I have heard rave reviews from people who have already done it. Put newspaper under your mulch beds to prevent and kill weeds. Genius!  No need to buy that pain in the butt expensive yard fabric, plus it's good for the environment too because it disintegrates in about 18 months.

Anything that allows me to relax in my yard sipping on a cool beverage, instead of pulling weeds, is a major win in my book!
