As was pointed out it does rain out there. Though there is a more insidious
issue that makes such attempts worthless.

Here's how it works...

Humidity in the air settles on the materials. Because of the daily
temperature extremes the expansion of this water causes the materials to
break into very small particles. The wind comes along and transports these
particles downwind.

I'll leave the rest to your imagination and a couple of hours with a geology
text on erosion.
