landscaping with rock, etc

What is the best material to lay around the perimeter of house, to place landscaping rocks on? Plastic or weedex stuff?? I want to get rid of tall the vegeation that grows around my home, and have nice rock covered areas.

Thanks fro any responses!

Going to have to remove everything so there's no roots left to grow back.
Weed block and plastic will be useless, silt screen also called driveway cloth would be much better.

At the minimum spray the area you intend to cover with herbicide to kill everything before placing your weed barrier fabric.

IMO, it depends what you want - landscape fabric will allow water to flow through it while plastic and the right grading can be used to divert water. My practice is plastic next to the house and landscape fabric in a feature which does not abut the house.
