    Alpine Strawberry Nuisance

    How about getting one of those wands that roast the weeds with a flame? Never tried one myself but it should work on gravel.

    Rhodohypoxis

    I have always done it when they first appear above soil in late Spring. At least then you can find the resting buds from which they grow.

    Any potential problems creating raised rock garden in damp corner

    Here's one I did, keeping it 12" away from the wall. Absolutely no need for membrane. The height of the earth on top solves drainage problems.
