This past spring, I had a lot of tractor and backhoe work done right behind my place. Now, the ground there is a mess. The biggest problem is that it's extremely rocky here and I now have rocks everywhere. Hardly any dirt anymore --- just rocks. And some weeds. I've moved all the biggest rocks, but there's still rocks everywhere. So what I'd like to do is lay down straw all over the messed up area, and just keep doing that til I get soil on top of the rocks again (this all happened after me spending three years getting all the rocks out of that area and getting soil built up). Is there any reason I shouldn't do this? And BTW, yes, I know there are tractor attachments which rake out rocks, but I'll be danged if I let anymore big machinery back there. I love my frogs and skinks too much to bother them anymore.
