Mulch or rocks

What is best to use around the outside of the house mulch or rocks. I like the looks of the rocks but I heard that mulch is better around the foundation on the house.

Well I always prefer mulch because it allows you to move plants, dig up dead ones or do foundation work. Once you mulch with rocks, it's a real nightmare to remove them if you have to.
