Customer Reviews for Landscape Fabric 5oz Woven
Two years ago I decided mowing grass is not my favorite thing, planned a sectioned garden and laid out this fabric for paths. It has stayed in place, not budged, prevented weeds, allowed water through, and generally made my life much easier by saving me a lot of time. I've pulled it up in places and reused it in others and it is none the worse for it. Best investment I ever made for the garden and yard. Oh, and driveway, too.
This is a good thick fabric that should last for years. It was very easy to cut with our titanium scissors and easy for my guys to place around plants. I have used several brands of weed mat over the years some good and some not so good. Since using this product I have nothing but good things to say and best of all my customers are happy and their beds are weed free. Great product.
I bought this landscape fabric for my raised-bed garden to avoid weeds between the boxes. The fabric was easy to work with and laid nicely, BUT I have already had weeds coming right through it - particularly a very persistent type of grass. I am very disappointed in that. For the price (it was rather expensive), I would have thought it would keep out all the weeds. Since it was just installed this year, I can't speak for how it will wear throughout its life or if it will live up to its 10-year life expectancy.
This landscape fabric is far superior to any other fabric that I have used. In spite of violent winds, it did not lift or tear. It blocked all weeds and allowed water to pass through quickly! I used the round top pins and I believe that they are much less likely to tear through the fabric. You should make them available in quantity less than a thousand.
I shopped online for the heaviest weight weedmat I could find and this was it. I was a little disappointed because it wasn't as beefy as some I had 10 years ago purchased for me by a commercial grower friend. But it was definitly stronger than what I could find at garden and lumber stores. I bought both the 3' and 6'wide rolls. The 3' was lovely. The 6' was not woven so that it rolled out flat. It was tighter on one side and so it bunched with wrinkles over long spans (20'). That is a manufacturing glitch perhaps they can address in the future.

QUESTION: How is the Landscape Fabric layed down when installed?
ANSWER: Landscape Fabric is installed with the "fuzzy" side down, then you can secure it with anchor pins such as our 616AP. If you are laying several pieces together overlap them about two inches and secure tight with anchor pins. You are now ready to cover it with mulch, gravel, etc.
