That is a great idea, that way you don't have to store the full bags and you don't have to mulch over them.
Excellent Thumbs up

So this is what they mean when they say that you can improve your lawn by throwing a few bags of compost onto it?

I plan to kill all the grass in my entire back yard this way and replace it with "no mow" grass (only gets 5" tall) seed from High Country Gardens and native ground cover plants. I wish I'd remembered to have a baby so I'd now have a grown son to help me with all the lifting!
Decisions, decisions.
I tried a couple of usernames and have finally settled on:

crittergarden.

That's it, no more changes. I'm done. I will be crittergarden here, on Cubits, and when I renew my Dave's Garden subscription on Noveber 4, I'll be crittergarden over there, too. DONE!~~~ UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, PART OF THEIR SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED ~~~

I had a pile of bags out behind my 2nd garage of things like manure, black dirt, sand ...they actually grew to the ground!!!! After digging it out, I used the manure in some compost this year....someone asked me if it was aged. I said "OOoooh yaz!!!!"

Take care that you don't leave the bags too long as the plastic ones will photodegrade and fall apart when you try to move them.
