Best way to keep weeds out???
Normally I use landscape fabric and mulch but I still get weeds I have to pull. It is getting harder for me to do this since I am the sole caregiver 24/7 for my husband. We are both 66 and he is disabled, so all the gardening, mowing, etc. chores are mine.
I have been thinking of using small stones instead of mulch for my hosta bed since I don't plant anything else there. I hate stone for beds you add annuals to etc. But for the hosta bed, maybe stone would work fine. I may even want to put it in my other beds that have perennials (rose bush, 2 clematis vines, creeping phlox, hydrangea, shasta daisies, and some sedum). I don't have to add any annuals to these beds. But this year I did add more mulch so probably won't make any changes to those beds and yes, I will have to pull weeds during the summer.
I so love my flowers.
Question is: Will the stones keep out the weeds if I put landscape fabric down around the hosta plants???
Thanks for your help.
