This is what I`ve been doing for a week.
One hour every morning before work.
I got a jump on it last Sat. (A week ago), when I had six guys in to help build a new parking area, up by the street.
I expect a load of Pea Gravel to be delivered this week to cover all the plastic sheeting, put down to prevent weeds from growing.
It`s not the nicest spot to be crawling around in pulling weeds.
The cactus area is almost 40 feet long by 13 feet wide.
Use of these kind of plantings bring down the cost of watering to zero.
I still have a bunch of cactus to go in, but that`s something that I do all year as I collect more & more.
When it`s completed, I`ll post more individual shots of the specimens.
Have a spine free week.
BTW, I did collect a few hundred tiny fine spines from one particular cactus, while one of my workers had a large cactus spine go through his work shoe.
I pulled that one out with pliers, as for mine, I burnt them off with a lighter, leaving them flush with the skin & not so aggravating. I got away without burning my fingers too much either.
