How do I stop the weeds and grass growing through the pebbles?

My garden has succulents planted and I have river stones covering the area. I have put down weed matt and the weeds and grass keep growing back and it's a never ending task, any suggestion would be great. Thank you.

    Feel your pain. I'm dealing with this as well. I just stay on top of the weeks by pulling them when I see them.

    Most likely the fabric had dissipated.My yard is a walking disaster with that.You will have to either try to reapply the fabric or stick newspapers son=me how and more fabric under the stones.Frequent weeding although is a pest is your only option.

    As long as you don't get it on your plants you can pour boiling water on the weeds to kill them.

    Spray with roundup and then sprinkle with Preen, keeps weed from growing back. Good Luck

      Thanks Peggy. We fight it every year here in Oregon with all the rain. We pull them and back they come. I spray them with round up and some other product and that don't last to long either. Never thought of using Preen. Put it every place else will have to use it on the gravel and rock pathway.
