Haven't seen any giant ragweed, but probably would not be a good thing for me to pick anyway.

That I have plenty of, just wasn't sure how easily it would break down.

The ones here get to 40 foot, have yellow flowers and refuse to die. Cot a tree down and the stump will continue to sprout for years. Then we have the small sensitive plant also called mimosa. So confusing.

Here is a couple pics of the flowers they put out for additional help.

These three grow like weeds around the yard. Anyone identify?

Is this what you mean by mimosa?

Sorry, live oak. Have a small blackberry bush and a cranberry hibiscus already. Growing a couple kinds of mint and a sweet potato so far along with a variety of native stuff(ie just blew in) and getting there very slowly. Not able to get much done at one time and now we have heavy rains. At least that is a good thing. Have several blueberries and a moringa to find room for and want to get a beautyberry bush for the front corner near neighbors property.

Ok, so I think the best way to improve my soil without major machinery is sheet mulching. What I am curious about is the materials. What I have available in quantity for free are oak leaves and wood chips from the city recycle center. There are palm fronds, a variety of weeds and a small amount of pine needles. What can I do with these materials? What else will I need to add? Might be able to work out a deal with a local petshop to get the used bedding from the rodents. Mainly use pine and aspen.
This is mainly for a small front yard that has some grass, mainly weeds, and an oak tree. The soil is not terrible but could be bette. The back is a little grass, lots of pretty weeds and sand. Hard to do much with the dog pack rampaging thru so that will be raised beds and my aquaponic system.

Funny thing is, around here mimosa are called a noxious weed and everyone tries to eradicate them.
