Landscape fabric is used to control weeds in planting beds. It shuts out light but allows water and air to pass through.
The usefulness of the landscape fabric depends upon such features as durability, color, breathability, materials, and thickness. The polyester, linen, or polypropylene variants are the most popular ones.
Sooner or later, the weed starts growing on the top of the fabric. There could be several reasons for this: incorrect installation of the fabric, damage of the cloth, improperly chosen type of the weed barrier, long term of application. In order to fully eliminate the possibility of weed growth, it’s recommended to use herbicide and change the landscape cloth regularly.
You can use landscape fabrics to keep your garden in order. Still, you should keep in mind that it is difficult to work in a flower bed that has landscape fabric in it. The weed barrier is an ideal variant to use with stone and mulch.
The installation of the landscape fabric needs minimum efforts. You don’t need special tools or specific knowledge. You should remove 3"-4" of soil, then install the fabric. The last thing you should do is to anchor the edges to the ground with landscape staples.
