Yeah. Use shredded versus chips though. Helps keep them from floating away. It doesn't help with the tree seedlings, but they are easier to pull through the mulch. Once I get the tree seedlings out of the way, I spend about 10 minutes a week to weed my entire yard. Neil and Mark across the street and I have a little game we play. When I'm doing my spring work and are pulling tree seedlings they say "Nanner nanner boo boo". When they are cutting their grass and edging I say "Nanner nanner boo boo" back to them. Another help is to put newspaper under the mulch. That's too much putzing for me, but I know people that do that and swear by it.
