We are NOT eating bark

This is a rather odd post. I had mentioned to some friends that I was using black bark to do our entire yard (front and back), and some folks wanted to see it (and so did my mom :-) So I am posting a picture of my effort here. Our gardeners quoted a thousand dollars to do our yard, but my kids and I did it in under 2 hours and for under two hundred dollars- which I thought was pretty sweet. And we used medium/large Preen bark, and the gardeners were just going to use small stuff (the black bark that pretty much looks like dirt).
