I gave my garden a glow up using just cardboard and mulch, but trolls say I’ve made a big mistake | The Sun

A WOMAN has been left confused after people warned she and her partner made a terrible mistake in their garden. 

Heather and Sean are currently renovating their 1964 house, which they describe as a “fixer upper” in North Carolina, the US.

With this in mind, they often use their social media account as a means to showcase the various DIY projects they have going on. 

In one such clip, the couple could be seen outlining the front garden before laying down cardboard sheets onto the grass surrounding several plants and flowers. 

“Nobody’s gonna know,” they wrote over this as they got to work. 

Once they positioned all the cardboard into the design they wanted it to be in, they used a hose to drench it all down.

The couple then dumped bags of mulch over the top and smoothed it over to cover the entire space. 

Panning the camera over the area, they then showed off the finished result, which they appeared pleased with. 

However, upon seeing TikTok users @athomewithbae’s video, people flocked to the comments section to share the terrible mistake they made. 

“Nice, but the boxes gonna keep roaches,” one person revealed.

Another chimed: “Me thinking ab how ur setting up a perfect environment for roaches basically building them a house.” 

While a third wrote: “I did this and got roaches for days!!” followed by four crying with laughter emoji. 

Heather and Sean replied: “Oh no! I’ve never heard of that! Luckily we spray for roaches lol,” followed by a praying hands emoji. 

Others came to the rescue too as one person wrote: “Real talk. If the bugs are outside, what’s the problem… Will they come inside????”

Another said: “The amount of people upset about bugs living outside is boggling my mind,” to which they responded: “Right lol”. 

“Folks. It’s outside. There’s bugs outside. We also WANT bugs in our yards,” a third added. 

According to the Laidback Gardener, cardboard can prevent weeds from growing. 

But, the Gardening Bank states that organic mulch that’s made of pine straws can attract cockroaches thanks to the moisture and heat. 

Luckily, however, there are cockroach killer sprays that can be used for the garden, including Zero In Anti-Bacterial Ant & Cockroach Killer, which costs just £4.
