Lawn gravel trench

Hi All,

Since I have some water runoff coming from the side of the house, it washed away most of the grass seeds that I planted last fall. I am currently overseeding now and leveling off the soil that has been washed away lately from the rain in the Boston area.

I dug up about 4" of soil and plan on installing a weed fabric, small gravel as a base layer, then topping it off with 1-3" river rock. To keep the rocks in place, I will also install steel edging;

Is there anything else I should thinking about? Should I try to kill off any weeds prior to installation?...using Glyphosate, or would the weed fabric be sufficient?

Thanks in advance!

Your plan sounds good and should look nice. I assume you've checked to make sure it's sloping downhill. You've already got your trench dug so all you can spray are the weeds/grass along the wood edging.
