How to Choose the Right Landscape Fabric
Woven or perforated fabrics are made from manmadematerials like polyester or natural ones like paper, burlap or linen. Wovenfabrics are porous so they allow water and air to penetrate to plant roots, butthey block light which hinders weed seed germination and growth. They help thesoil retain moisture, but the holes allow water to evaporate which creates ahealthier growing environment. They can be used to create an effective weedbarrier in garden beds and around plants anywhere in the landscape, includingtrees, shrubs, bushes and flowers.
