I just moved into a new house and there are some strange things about the garden. There are small, uniformly sized lava rocks filling the entirety of the flower beds that run along both the front and back of the house. There is also black paper just a couple inches under the surface of the lava rocks.
I'm not a very experienced gardener, and I've never had a garden like this. The gardens at the 2 houses I grew up in were just.. dirt. What am I supposed to do with this lava and paper garden? There is pretty much only moss and weeds growing in it at the moment.
Is it okay if I just pull out the paper and leave the lava? I can't imagine planting flowers in nothing but these rocks.
