The truth is that it looks the same all year! Those old woodchips need to be swapped out though. All of the extra rain over last winter has brought forth a bumper crop of weeds though and it’s an every-other-day task to spray or scuffle-hoe them down. I am very sure that the HOA people are sending notices to all of the homeowners about controlling their weeds which too many of them don’t. Stop being so lazy, people!
