    I dont do a whole lot of landscape, especially stone. I am more of a grass guy, but I have a customer insist that she wants me to do this job and wanted to get some help if you guys could. I know the picture attached dont show everything but it can give you a general idea. The picture shows mulch in all the beds but it is a old picture, now there is small stone that barely cover the ground in a lot of parts. Whoever she had do it, it now looks like crap. The landscape beds go all the way around the house and out about 3 ft from the house. There are weeds and grass growing through the stone and the dirt is exposed in many areas where the black plastic is ripped up and shredded for some reason. My question is, she wants more small stone added and then bigger stones on top for decor, so what is the best way to clean up all the weeds and grass and be able to put more stone down to stop this from happening again. I only have a 3/4 ton truck and there is about 675 sq ft of landscape bed, so I hope I can haul this much stone. If any help can be given it would be greatly appreciated.

    Kill the weeds with round up- figure how much stone you need- have it delivered and then spread it. Every year spray the weeds for more money.
