Getting rid of grass - should I remove sod, spray chemicals, or just use geotextile fabric or all of the combined?
I plan to get rid of all the grass on two the sides of my house and replacing it with white rocks. There is only 10 feet between me and neighbours so its tough for grass to grow.
How do I ensure that grass/weeds do not continue to grow once I replace white rocks on my lawn? I plan to use geotextile landscaping fabric. Will this be enough? Should I go a step further and spray chemicals on my lawn to kill the grass and weeds before hand? If so, where can I get these chemicals? I obviously need a lot and homedepot/lowes only sells them by the bottle (and they are all weed killers, I need grass killer). Or should I go a step further and remove all the sod?
