Tree Problems

oak tree roots

Zone 70605 | gokay added on November 3, 2016 | Answered

I planted ground cover around the tree but didn't do well. Can I cover the tree roots with river rock or lava rock? Don't want to put mulch because I like to blow the leaves away.

Yes, it is fine to use lava rocks or river rocks instead of mulch over tree roots.
