Weed control: Dollar weeds around a rose bush

11 years ago

Hello again. I have a rose bush I planted a little over a year ago in the back yard that is growing very well. Origionally we had St Augistine grass all over and there was no problem with planting it. Now it has a huge amount of dollar weed all around the base of the rose bush. I went through with round up (i believe it was) and tried to kill as much as I could but I wonder if it really did anything to the dollar weeds roots which still look pearly white. Can anyone give any additional info..?

Also I was thinking of advantages of using rock ground cover around base as opposed to mulch as I seem to notice a problem with stink horns growing in the mulch which I just can't stand the smell of.
