How to reduce weeds in landscaping

I live in Midlothian, Texas. I have 2 large landscaping areas with flowers and plants in them, most of the area is in full sun. Both have crushed granite on the surface. One area has no landscape fabric and the other one does. It makes no difference as to the large amount of weeds I get in both beds. What can I do to eliminate or slow down the weed production? It seems like the majority of them are coming from the top of the landscape as opposed to below. My neighbor has a field right next to us where he plants wheat. Please help, it took me 11 hours and 3 days to get all the weeds pulled from both areas this week.

horse suddenly quits eating

one of my horses did not come with the rest of them to fence to be fed.She stood out in pasture,seemed listless.I called her and she came,but would not eat,than imidiately went back down to pasture and just stood there.She was not limping,no sign of injury anywhere,no sweating or restlessness,just seemed lethargic.Same feed she has always had.There are horse apples,could this be the cause.Last night she was fine,came running to the fence at feed time. I read about Potomac disease in horses and found out fresh water snails can cause it.I have thousands of them on my property around damp ground and water.Horses drink out of a three hundred gallon livestock container so is it possible they have this and if this mare does have it would it have affected her so quickly.Less than twentyfour hours ago she was eating like her normal pig self,running etc.,tonight,a totally different horse.

Plant name?

I inherited a plant from my mother but my family doesn't remember the name of it. It seems tropical and needs sunlight, lots of water and humidity
