Yesterday I filled three large trashbags with mulch at the city parks free compost site and have them ready to use in the garden on top of layers of newspaper or cardboard to mark the paths. Last year's paths are still clear of weeds after the same treatment. I prefer cardboard, though not as heavy as the stuff I recycled a couple of weeks ago. I have a few small boxes here and I can usually pull more out of the village recycle bins. Small boxes that are unfolded and laid out under mulch are perfect.

This morning I broke apart the pallet-board Adirondack-style chair that had crumbling planks so it's now in a tall trashcan at the curb. I dragged it out on Saturday and a couple of times I heard people slow or stop to look at it, but they moved on (this is a good way to discard workable things). And now it's down to it's elemental planks.
