**** yeah, I love it. Here in AZ, zero grass. I love it. Only downside is a **** ton of weeds. With the rock you have to spray chemicals a lot, to keep it clean. little tip: vinegar with salt DESTROYS weeds. you can make your own batches for 2 dollars.

Nice.

What concentration or mix do you use?

I had noted the vinegar and salt water recommendation, so thanks for adding the note about adding a couple of drops of dish soap.

Salt. That's what the Romans did to Carthage so nothing would grow there for centuries. I should try that in my yard because the weed killers don't do squat.

Weed mat is worthless. The seeds land from the top, not underneath.
I had my yard killed and redone last year. Good grass, and still looks great.
I put landscape felt down in the area around our AC condenser unit and topped it off with about 2-3" of gravel about 3 years ago. The seeds only grow in the gravel area. The roots don't penetrate through the felt. You can also lay down a double layer of felt. Whatever does grow pulls out easily or you can spray it with a weed killer. But a felt is certainly better than no felt when it come to gravel, river rocks etc.

I use a propane torch, weed trimmer or weed killer.

Weed killers are also known to cause cancer. Only use that in areas where your pets can't get to. They absorb the stuff through their paws.

I appreciate the low maintenance and the look, but I honestly enjoy (rider) mowing once a week for 1.5 hrs March-October. Its a great way to have some time to myself with good music in my ear and a cold beer. I also have a pool so I usually jump in when I finish to cool off its its hot. If I get too old to enjoy it anymore I will either pay someone or downsize the house and yard. Warm months I spend in the yard and cooler months in the shop working on car projects.

i guess i'll give the weed killer a try - I keep seeing 1gallon vinegar, 1 cup of any kind of salt and tablespoon of dish soap that doesnt have any bleach.

it also says there are stronger vinegar mixes for horticultural use that are stronger than the 5% of grocery store stuff but unlike some weed killer it's not selective at all so don't over spray near things you wanna keep

Let us know how the weed paper works. The weeds here in Vegas just blast right through it. I got rid of my grass, put down weed paper and rock on top...and the weeds just laugh there way through it.

This stuff right here will DESTROY any weed known to mankind. Two treatments and they will die and won’t come back.

Just keep it away from any grass because it will kill that too.

I use ranger pro with pretty good results. 2.5 gallon jug is diluted to 2oz/gallon of water. One jug lasts me almost 3 years and its only $55 or so.
