Will small stones keep weeds out????
Not sure this is the right forum to ask this, but here goes.
Presently I use mulch. I am 66 and am the sole caregiver to my husband 24/7, so less and less I have time to work in my flower beds. I hate stones to tell the truth. But I thought if I use them in my hosta bed (and there are a couple other perennial plants in there along with the hostas) that I could take the mulch out, put down landscape fabric and then put stones on top. But will it keep the weeds out?
I have a front flower bed with mulch and I am almost done getting all the small 4x4 beds (there are 3 plus two 2x4 beds) re-landscaped with landscape fabric and mulch. I would put stones in there but I have plants that come back every year and afraid the stones would prevent them from coming back?? I have creeping phlox, a rose bush, shasta daisy, some sedum and a Hydrangea plus 2 clematis vines.
Any help you can give is appreciated. Thanks,
