I am in a very dry area and need to cover the ground that I have prepared in my yard. I have been buying (about 35 bags now) organic compost to cover the dirt and thanks to our horrible weather; the wind has blown nearly all of it away.
Some things to keep in mind:
1. There is no local source for organic hay or straw :0(
2. If I do wood chips it would need to be purchased at Lowe's or Home Depot (only local stores)
3. The wind ranges from 15-50 mph every day (more in storms)
6. All the leaves in the city are gone (they blow away during the winter)
I appreciate any and all help!!!
