Landscape fabric can help you wrest back control of your garden from the weeds. Made from heavy duty geotextile membrane, when laid over a prepared sub-base our weed control fabric will allow you to cover the area with aggregate or decorative bark and prevents light from reaching the growing medium underneath. Starved of UV light, grass and weeds are unable to establish, but weed control membrane still allows water and nutrients from reaching roots of your plants. Even where weeds do manage to find a way, they’ll be few and far between, and much easier to remove as their roots haven’t been able to penetrate the weed suppressing membrane. This makes garden maintenance much less time consuming, allowing you to spend more time enjoy your outside space and less time tending to your flowerbeds and borders.
Other uses for weed control membrane include covering plants during the colder months as an alternative to fleece or mulch, and using it to cover areas of lawn that you wish to reclaim for beds or borders. Once the lawn grass has died back you can prepare the soil for planting, using the very same landscape fabric to supress weed growth in your new flowerbeds. Landscape fabric can also be used to prevent the growth of weeds underneath paths, driveways, decking or anywhere else you’re laying decorative stone or aggregate that you’d like to keep free of unsightly weeds.
