I turned over and got rid of all of the grass in an area at the front of my yard. It is isolated on all four sides by cement. I thought that I got rid of everything but now that the area is covered by rock and mulch, there are weeds and grass sprouting up everywhere! I see around the town that I am not the only one having grass in mulch problems, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating. I tried spraying the area with vinegar solution but it did nothing. And with the infrequent rain, it has been getting worse. I weeded by hand a couple of times but it just keeps coming back. Does anyone have suggestions for me? I can't do much about the mulch area but if there is something I can put under the rock to discourage growth (besides film) I can remove the rock to put something down in that area. There is some grass, crabgrass, and other assorted weeds.
I'm so sad because I worked so hard on this and it looked so nice before this junk started coming up.
