Covering Lava Rock with Mulch??

12 years ago

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of red lava rock beds that the previous owner of my house installed. I personally do not like the looks of red lava rock and in addition the beds are starting to look bad. I would like to get rid of the lava rock but tried to do this in a smaller bed a couple of years ago and it was a literal pain in the back because the rock essentially embeds itself in the soil making it very difficult to remove. I was wondering if it would be ok to just cover the lava rock with mulch? Do any of you see any drawbacks in doing so? Any other suggestions?
