A few days later I sorted thru all the junk that was on the right and either junked it, or moved it to another location.  Then in again w/the weed whacker and cut the rest of the grass and what ever small scrubby trees were there.

It's now 28 August 2008 and I've spread 1 yard of compost, $40 a yard, and trimmed the Java Plum of low branches.  In the back middle of the mulched area I planted a young Dypsis fibrosa which was part of my July Floribunda 1 gallon order.

Dypsis fibrosa before the mulch went down.
