I'm wanting to lay down a 70m2 area with pea gravel and pavers for around a pool and some.
The ground's covered with all sorts of things... ie. grass, weeds, bluemetal etc. It's going to cost me around $800 to get Bob in to take out and replace with topsoil. I'm figuring after that, I weed kill, lay thick plastic and then put down my pea gravel.
It's a job I'd prefer not paying too much for, so my question is....
Will the grass and weeds still end up growing back and eventually through my plastic which will result in me trying to weed kill anyway.
Can I just weed kill the entire area and lay my gravel on top of that and just keep up the weed kill in the arrea. Will the pea gravel soak up the killer and not let it get down to the soil/grass.
I guess I'm hoping this can be done, but I realise it's probably not the best way to go about it.
Any input would be great, but if someone out there does know that weed killing through gravel is possible I'd love to hear about it! (:
Cheers guys. - JD
