It can be extremely fast and easy to plant perennials into your garden. Use a spade to dig up some soil, flip the soil over, and finally, sprinkle around 3-4 inches of wood chips on the soil. Give the area a couple of weeks, then dig into it and plant your new perennials.
Store a few plastic bags near your garden to slip on over your dirty gardening shoes. This way, you can get in and out quickly, and get back to work in the garden.
Pine can make surprisingly great mulch. Some garden plants have a high acidity, and prefer acidic soil.
