Well finally got the gravel today and my father and I are in the process of spreading it. We aren't finished yet but will be tonight once it get's cool enough to work out side comfortably. Well here are some pictures of my father on the ATV spreading it around.

Well I don't think it'll be too much of a concern as if it starts to come up I can just pour roundup or just pour grass killer through the gravel if it does, come up through. I don't think it will though. Thanks for the good luck!

If the gravel is thick enough, it should kill the majority of the grass without problem. If grass does come through, I'd try using some vinager first (mostly cause I don't like chemicals), but in any event be carefull on spraying the roundup once you have plants in there.

Looks great NG---I'm so jealous. I'd love a greenhouse but the only place in my yard is what is now the dog's yard and she already gives me dirty looks when I even walk through it with a shovel (cause she thinks I'm going to dig yet another garden and make her yard smaller
