Liz picked up a yard and a half of bark dust when she came to help with the sod. I spread that out over lawn cloth tonight. It took almost the whole roll to cover the three sides that we are planning to eventually put stone raised beds. Then I started the farthest away from the gate and started laying it on thick. In some of the pre- photos, you might be able to see that the yard slopes back towards the fence away from the lawn on all three sides.
So, I have to lay it thick to bring it up the the level of the lawn. Hope the dogs poop and pee in that! You can see in the South-facing picture the two burns spots I have already. Mutts.
I'll pull it way from the bottom of the fence when I get it all down - eventually there will be a stone pathway along the edge of the fence all along the perimeter.
