1 foot gap between our fence and our neighbors retaining wall?
We have a 1 ft gap between our fence and neighbors retaining wall that we have to keep cleared of weeds. Putting down rocks did not keep weeds from growing, and we do not want ivy or other ground cover that will cause mold and provide wildlife a place to live, so now we need ideas on how to fill the space, so we can stop pulling weeds all the time. All ideas are good ideas!

Is there a sure-fire way to get rid of Creeping Charley?
Did you put a barrier under the rocks? If not I would suggest that you put several layers of newspaper down and then the rocks or the newspaper and then a purchased barrier, rocks on top. Another option is to leave spots for some small plants that are water by a drip system to make sure you don't encourage weeds to grow.
Get black fabric mesh that (I forget the name of it) poison the dirt, apply the fabric and put it down between your fence & your neighbors retaining wall, put either rocks to hold it down & put flower pots in the space. You can train & trim a vine of your choice like a hummingbird vine, from a small flower pot & over time it will grow up, you can train it on your fence all you need is a tall stick to train it, it will get bushy, but you can trim it. The hummingbirds will go to your vine.Eventually it will fill the space. To keep wildlife away bury a clove of garlic around the pot, Deer will stay away.
Hope this helps you out
Put down some landscape fabric over the area. Allows for drainage and weed protection. Then any kind of gravel on top of the landscape fabric. Do not use plastic sheeting.
My thanks to all of you. I will look into the options provided.
