Difference Between Non Woven vs Woven Landscape Fabric

Posted by Jordan Hamasaki on

We sell three different types of landscape fabric: Woven, Non Woven, & Paper.

Woven Landscape Fabric is heavy duty and great for weed barrier applications. However, it does not allow for water permeability. Great for rock/gravel landscaping.

Non Woven Landscape Fabric is heavy duty, great for weed barrier applications and also allows for water permeability. Great for gardens, landscapes and farms.

Paper: For those that want to avoid plastic, we have an option for you. This paper is fully biodegradable and is 100% eco-friendly.

Option 1 - Woven

For weed barrier only (no water permeability) - most economical. Here are the sizes of fabric we offer.

Option 2 - Woven

Extra Thick Weed Barrier Fabric (no water permeability) - more expensive.

We recommend this for very tough weeds applications.

4 oz Woven - Available in 6 ft, 12.5 ft or 17.5 ft Width (This fabric is 30% thicker than Option 1)

6 oz Woven - 6 ft Width - This fabric is 2X thicker than Option 1 and comes with a 1 yr weed-free guarantee

Option 3 - Non-Woven

For weed barrier AND water permeability (allows 100 gallons per minute to flow-through) - most expensive - 8 oz Non Woven Fabric

Biodegradable Landscape Paper - For those that want to avoid plastic, we have an option for you. This paper is fully biodegradable and is 100% eco-friendly.

How to pick between Woven & Non Woven?

The way to decide is to ask yourself this question: do you want water to permeate through the fabric? If yes, choose Non Woven. If it does not matter, choose Woven (less expensive).
