If you have no plants in the beds spray with gly. If they will be left without plants add sureguard pre emergent with the gly and you wot have to touch the beds for around 3-4 months

digging around in a peagravel bed would be such a mess... If I did get involved with it there would be plans for fabric in the future or better yet, mulch... if not, I wouldn't touch it...
