As the mail deliverer leaves our front door, he/she (we seem to have three or four different people who alternate on our route) walks across the lawn and through the end of the mulch area by the street sidewalk. Last year, I transplanted some irises to this area. I would like them to survive. Thrive even. Bloom, hopefully, this first year. I knew I needed to take action to protect the irises.
It may not seem like much of a deterent, but has worked in the past so I'm trying it again.
After my wonderful husband saw my efforts, he said something about investing in a front fence... :-)
