Pinecones Galore

We have loads of pinecones on our property.  The squirrels eat a lot of them, but so many are left on the ground, which is a problem when it's time to start mowing again in the spring.  They shoot out like bullets from under the mower.

So, I stole this awesome idea from someone on pinterest.

I gathered them all up and put them in the entryway flowerbed as mulch.  It's freshened up the bed quite a lot.

I even went and gathered up the neighbor's pinecones, for which he was grateful.  It takes way more pinecones than you'd think to cover this area.

Love this idea. I'm sure it was a lot of work but it looks great.

You should put some around your azaleas and hydrangeas and see how they do in the spring.
