pebbles and trees
We very recently planted lots of trees and shrubs in our yard and we were hoping to have a xeriscape yard. The plan was to lay landscape fabric where there are no trees and then landscape with pebbles. However, we were told by someone that it would kill all of our trees and shrubs. Now can you help us with this? Do the pebbles impede the growth of the trees? If so, what can we do? We live in Okotoks, Alberta, which is 15 minutes South of Calgary.
