Q.How can I contain mulch?

Zone Silver City, NM 88061 | Anonymous added on May 19, 2020 | Answered

If I put mulch around my peonies for example how do I keep it from getting spread all over? I have several areas where I want to contain it–like around all my rhubarb plants, a small peach tree, other parts of my yard, too. Like I want to put bark on my walkways but it’s going to not stay put unless I can somehow contain it. I need to be frugal here, I’m not a woman with lots of money, I’m a Sr. on limited income, but I want a neat small yard/ garden.
Thank you!

You can use rocks, bricks or lawn edging; lawn edgings come in many sizes and types available at most garden centers or even big box stores.
