Lauren, as usual, great, informative article, thank you! I have nasturtium seeds I wasn’t sure what to do with, but I’m going to plant them in with my vegetables!

@wedreambuilders Apply landscape fabric before laying gravel. If it is a particularly bad area, consider using a flamethrower for a couple years before the final gravel application to try to kill off most of the weed and seed bed. Please do whatever you can to avoid herbicides.
