Ok, so we bought this house where the people had planted a bunch of flowers and shit. I am allergic to flowers and could give a rat fuck about whatever other plant stuff is growing out of the ground. So, I've been the one stuck with trying to keep it all under control and I'm sick of it. I decided to just rip it all out. The flowers next to the garage I want to replace with some stone/pebble type stuff. I need to figure out how much I need to dig up, cause the roots are pretty deep, or if I can just get out what I can, lay down some rubber matting and put the stones on top? I only want to have to do this once. I don't want stuff growing underneath the rubber and pushing up, necessitating me having to re-do the whole fucking thing. As you can tell, I hate this shit. I spent two hours yesterday digging up a big flower bush. I just want this stuff gone so I don't have to deal with it anymore. I have no idea what I'm doing. Any advice?
