Frequently asked questions

Should weeds be removed before laying landscape fabric?

It is recommended that all weeds and undesirable vegetation be removed before laying down Spunbond landscape fabric. Large resilient weeds may push through the landscape fabric and negatively affect your landscaping efforts if weeds are not removed.

How do you further prevent weeds from growing through landscape fabric?

Layer mulch, rocks, or other heavy objects on top of the landscape fabric to weigh it down. The secure placement of high-quality landscape fabric prevents weed seeds from getting to the ground to root and deters weeds from achieving photosynthesis and further growth.
