Banana and bamboo mulching

Nothing better than a bit of activity in the yard, as the day gets slowly rolling in through the mellow hills of Pai
The bamboo grove nearby needs some proper care and lots of old and dried pieces of roots come off pretty easily all around the cluster but it's going to take a lot of effort before cleaning it properly.

A sudden idea pops up in my mind...
I need to turn all this into a thick mulching cover around other plants in the yard. First laying down the bamboo then filling it in with shredded banana leaves and such then watering it really well at the end.


That's it! Now it will need to be watered a few times so let's see how long it takes before it will all break down into the soil...
