This shows a Swangkee Flowerbed, which uses ROUGH Rocks for Mulch, after it grew up.
Now, it Appears that it would Require a LOT of Hard Work to make a Flowerbed like this, which is True; but, most of that Work can be done during the Winter Months for Good Exercise, when it is Cool — rather than Waste any Time and Energy at some Gymnasium or “Fitness Center,” doing Futile Profitless Exercises with Bar Bells, Push-ups, Pull-ups, Squat Benders, Jumping Jacks, or whatever — and then, after your Mulching Rocks are in Place, you can Relax when it gets Hot: because it only Requires a half Hour or less during a whole Season, in Order for you to Weed this Kind of a Flowerbed, even if you are Old and Tired. Indeed, you simply get your Topsoil Prepared with the Correct Fertilizers (as I will Explain later on), and then you lay down your Mulching Rocks, using Peat Moss, Rotted Sawdust, Cyprus Bark, or Wood Chips in the Cracks between the Rocks; and then, when it comes Time for Planting Flowers, you remove some of the Peat Moss, and Plant your Pre-started Flowers, which are found in Flower Shops all over this Country, unless you want to grow your own. And at last, you put some of that Peat Moss or Cyprus Bark back into those Spaces around the Flowers, after they have grown up a few more inches. Moreover, all of that Work can be done during the Cool Time of the Mornings, which Means that you can have such a Flowerbed without raising so much as one Drop of Sweat, if you just Remember to remove your Coat before you go to Work with those Rocks during the Winter.
