Since we found out we are going to be living in our current home for the next 2 1/2 yrs we have decided to tackle our ugly garden out back.... it used to be a jungle. I used to have pics, but they are on my crashed laptop. So image a wildy weedy overgrown jungle. It's bigger than the whole of my yard. My husband had a "plan" for it to make it look nice. We want to make stairs going up it and line it with all the rocks that were "growing" (seriously, there are more rocks up in there than anything) in the garden.
So we have like 2+ large totes like this of rocks. (this is the HUGE tote box) The dirt is from when my youngest escaped the house and dug up my veggie garden. Angry

And here is the garden, partially cleaned up (this is actually looking GOOD)

He has to do the weed killer up in there, cut down 2 of the overgrown bushes on the left and then dig up the old roots for the bushes that were in there. (we have an allergy issue with them) Then about 2 weeks after that we can do work up in there and we are going to plan a garden, a useful veggie garden at that, roses (since they aren't wind pollinated and won't aggravate our sinuses) and some other stuff that won't irritate us.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO my question is this (sorry it was just long winded) How would I paint all those rocks white to line the path of the steps? Just latex paint and a sealer? Should we use whitewash? Doing whitewash seems like such a p.i.t.a, but if it'll hold better, we'll do it. Otherwise I have white latex paint here and could do that then seal it?


I need help.


Spring semester is kicking my butt.
