Randall, free straw is great!  

What kind of watermelons do you grow?

Randy, when summer comes here, there is no rain for several months. So grass cutting makes a nice dry mulch like your neighbors grass. I vuew mowing as harvesting mulch.

Grass seeds could be an issue. Might be ok in no-till setting, with successive layers of mulch on the surface to prevent germination. Some of my raised beds are like that.

For my "straw", I gather the tall grass left by the farmer that mows the road sides (after it dries). I place it around individual plants and between rows. Of course, the danger is in the seeds left behind. I compost my lawn grass.

King, your tulips are lovely and the green around them look so fresh and healthy. Great gardener Award to you and your fine efforts.

Cenek, the straw mulch will serve you well!  Decrease weeds + keep the soil more evenly moist, reducing water requirement + will eventually compost itself in place, enriching your soil.  Your garden has a lot of promise there!

I have a shredder that is intended to chop trimmings and leaves for mulch.  They clog it up and I have to continuously clean it out, so now it sits unused in a shed.  I was thinking of using it to chop straw for a finer mulch.  Not required, but Iike to experiment.  The dry brittle straw might chop easier than plants and twigs.

king glad you got some rain, even with the weed problem.
