Re: rocks

It isn't just the "drier areas of the US" that use rock mulch. I see it all over here. I think that landscape contractors are pushing it because it is relatively cheap and doesn't decompose readily.

Anywhere you go in the drier areas of the US, it seems like a standard
landscape technique to use rock for mulch. Many in non-dry climate zones have made
fun of the landscapes in San Antonio because they will literally take up all
their lawn and put down rock. So instead of streets of lawn, there are streets
of rock. Of course there are islands of plants in the rocks, but if one is
not used to it, it can be a funny sight.
