I have an idea to buy a chipper/dicer/whatever for my yard waste. Then i would use the the stuff as a ground cover/multch for my flower/vegie beds. This would help retain moisture in the beds and would break down to nice soil quicker than the piles of big stuff my gardener secretes around the place (cuz he is forbidden to burn!)

Does any one know what? where to buy? a device that would work for this purpose?

They are called machetes and can be used without a license by most any Dominican or Haitian.

Santiago has such a thing I think..... as you enter from the Moca side
Near the bridge/river.... at a dip in the road on the south side.
Lots of them on the roadside for sale.

Don't they use them here to mulch food for cattle ?
