Best mulch to get for slimbed tapering toward path
I have some box that will take a few more years to do much shading yet. The weeds are already ridiculous and I am struggling to find time to tackle this part of the garden regularly, so I'd like to put something on top of the dirt to help me out a bit in preventing the weeds. The bed isn't very wide (maybe 1 - 2 foot).
The 'bed' slightly tapers toward a public path so I want one that's least likely to 'spill off''. I also don't wish to break the bank too much if possible? Would bark chipping work?
I have another much wider bed that I might do similar on so may be best to match, so thats where cost comes in a bit more...
