Wednesday Lagniappe: Rocks in the....
I have a very occasional peice "Love it or Hate it?" but I thought the answer was obvious here. People living somehwere nearish to me have removed the few perennials they had (mostly daylilies) and replaced them with...rocks (and this photo only shows a portion of the total rocked area). They used the kind of rock you use for drainage or for a driveway. Gray, chunks of...rock. I understand why businesses (and apparently some homeowners) do this, thinking it is a permanent mulch, and will not need to be replaced. I'm guessing weeds will still come up, unless they sterilized the soil bed, applied a landscape fabric and no weed seeds fall on the area. But even then. This is really one of the more unattractive landscapes I have seen. That, and the hedges these folks cut into balls. I would rather waist high weeds.
