About Landscape Fabric/ Weed Block
While some people find weeding their garden therapeutic, many of us would prefer to do it as little as possible. Landscaping fabric, or weed block, keeps unsightly weeds from taking over your sidewalk, garden and other landscaped areas.
Landscape fabric functions as a weed barrier, but is still breathable allowing water and essential nutrients to filter through to the soil. While gardeners regularly combat above ground pests, they also lay this fabric in their gardens to deter unwelcome growth from below ground. And though garden fabric inhibits new weed growth, it’s important to remove existing weeds before laying it down.
