Centuries of landscape design & garden maintenance lessons in France, where I took this pic. What is wrong in this pic?
The gardener has increased his gardening time by 10-15X's. Why? Don't we all want low maintenance?
Fallen prunings, with thorns, have to be picked up by hand. Leaves & petals will have to be blown.
A sheet under the prunings, dahlings. A sheet. All is picked up, no thorn worries, no blower.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Other gardeners at this public park outside Paris were using sheets.

Maybe someone else comes along and cleans up the mess ;-) But I agree if I was doing it a tarp or plastic sheet would be going along.

And the dogs might get thorns in their paws.
