reducing weeds in rock garden
I love small plants and especially hen and chicks. The problem I have is that these rock garden beds require more work weeding than any other beds. Larger perennials cover the ground and keep weeds out.
Any suggestions for reducing maintenence?
Right now the beds have sandy soil with wood mulch. I was thinking of digging them out and replacing with just sand and gravel to see if this reduces weeds. If it is mostly gravel it might dry out quick enough to kill off most weeds.
Another option is to make a special bed where the soil depth is very low.
