I'm hoping someone can settle this dispute my wife and I are having. On our property we have a small hill (maybe 3 feet tall?) that has a sort of rock wall on the side of it (big rocks piled on top of each other, 3 rocks high) that now has a lot of weeds growing between the rocks and all around it.
I want to pull all of the weeds and place mulch around the rocks to help prevent weed growth in the future, I think it will make the rocks look nice without so many weeds everywhere.
However she is insisting the weeds are keeping the rocks together in a sense? I think she means without the vegetation the top rocks might wash away if it rains a lot, or the soil will erode and thus wash the rocks away. I was under the impression that rocks work just as well if not better than vegetation when it comes to erosion.
Any help please?
