Wow! I just want to say thank you everyone for your input. Heather-yes I want to keep my trees. Are you in Ohio? I could use some of your mulch LOL. Tyler-you are right-I do not want any pesticides in my yard. I would use the mulch at first to map out curved walking paths to keyhole garden plots right between the brick patio and large pine tree. I am OBSESSED with permaculture and this garden design which is really stupid cause it is winter now (5 inches of snow and 20 degrees last week.) I am late to the party so I want to thank all of you for your input- much appreciated!

Awwww- that's to bad...I was "rooting" for them! I have a old apple tree (over 40 years old) that is way over grown and I wondered if I could cut some of the suckers and replant them for newer producing trees?

This must be divine intervention! I just found this site TODAY. Looking for info on my URBAN Ohio zone 6a yard. I love all the post and think this will be the place to get helpful information. I am in a "higher" class suburban neighborhood where all the neighbors have the typical beautiful landscaped yards. We have the ugliest yard as we stopped spraying chemicals in our yard years ago. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to push mow our yard. My husband and I are very busy professionals-(me, by force-I am a tree hugger by heart..lol). I want to cut down on mowing by making a potager garden right outside the back door and a natural native island "meadow" in the back of the property. I have limited composing materials -basically the neighbors 8 pine trees dropping needles in my yard. I have a blank canvas-help!...Where do I start?
