we disagree on round-up vs plastic; I can take plastic in for recycling -- can't trace much less get rid of roundup once it is out of the bottle -- good luck with that.

Plastic is recycled in China! Like I said do some research - that was the default - both Round Up and plastic film are made from petroleum. Use cardboard or newspapers (not much market for them as recycled products either) and compost them or vinegar etc.

I thought that it was helpful when you suggested to look for gravel that is supplied nearby because that will help you save money. My wife and I want to get gravel for our backyard to make it look great, and it would be important for us to stick to our budget. When we look for a gravel supplier to buy from, I will be sure to start our search locally.
