J.D. Martell-

What fabric do you use. Ive tried gray balck and green and the black seems to work the best for me but weeds still go through it. Whats your take?

Again I'm not a fan of fabrics for mulches, stone for sure as it separates the soil from the stones.

Otherwise work looks good. Try and keep the mulch pulled back from your nice deep edges so they stay deep. Really sets off a good look! Not sure the laws in your area but unless you have a license you cannot apply pesticides/herbicides.
Yeah either way you can't really stop the weeds from coming up, the fabric just helps

Don't really know the difference between colours, but the stuff i use is black and its heavy duty.
