I have white rocks as part of my landscaping. I would like to replace the rocks with mulch. What are my options for the rocks? I would like to get rid of them.

In my experience changing from rock chips to mulch is not easy but your plants will thank you. I used a flat spade to scrape up and remove the stones and put them in my wheelbarrow. I then used the wheelbarrow to move and pile them in my driveway. I then recycled some of the stones with concrete pavers to make a pathway. But I still had a lot of stones left, so I advertised them as "free, you haul" in the local paper. My phone rang off the hook! The pile was gone from my driveway in one day. They went to be used inside a commercial sized smoker for pit beef barbecue. I hope this gives you some ideas.
