Hi Everyone, recently I posted questions on weed control with my lawn, and I am grateful for the advice. Next I need to attack the landscaping.
Previous owner created a border around the side of the house, placed some weed netting and tossed about 2-3" of white rock (small rounded stones), put some perennials (unknown variety) and tiger lilies.
The netting does nothing to stop the weeds and I honestly don't know what
to plant, and if I try to plant, will it make it through the rocks?
Also, I HATE the white stones and wondered if there is value in leaving wood chips on top or am I asking for trouble and should try to get rid of the stones.
Last question is the netting, which didn't stop the weeds at ALL. I was a bit peeved over this, and wanted some common sense advice. If this is a bit rambling, I apologize. The last yard was pretty manageable and for this place it's insane. What would you recommend as good weed control that won't kill the plants that I want?
I really want to clean this yard up before winter. If I CAN plant yet this year that is my goal. Thank you for your advice!
