Protect Your Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds From Weeds!

Nothing will ruin your beautiful garden more than weeds! Sandbaggy 18" Landscape Fabric is trusted by farmers and landscape contractors across this country. Manufactured with durable woven polypropylene, it meets or exceeds DOT standards making it a great heavy duty landscape fabric that can be used under gravel and soil.

We ensure that our landscape fabric has at least 135 lbs of tensile strength, as well as UV inhibitors to ensure longevity after installation. It is also very easy to install.

All you need to do is lay out the fabric and use Sandbaggy landscape staples to hold the fabric in place. Planting trees and plants is easy as well. Just cut the fabric with a pair of scissors and place the plant through the fabric, and you're done.

    • SAME, STRONG MATERIAL AS FLOOD CONTROL SANDBAGS: The durability of polypropylene woven fabric has been tested in severe flooding across this country and has stood the test of time. The same material that protects cities from being inundated with floodwaters is also used to produce Sandbaggy's commercial landscape fabric.
    • STOP WEEDS IN VEGETABLE GARDENS & FLOWER BEDS: Using thick 3 oz fabric tightly woven by industrial grade looms, it makes it much more difficult for weeds to puncture through the fabric. Another side benefit with landscape fabric is that it helps prevent weeds from growing by blocking out the sunlight weeds need to grow. We recommend using our 18 inch wide landscape fabric for gardening applications.
    • KEEP SOIL IN PLACE:  Keeps your soil in place and prevents it from being eroded away during a rainstorm. Great for use under mulch or in a greenhouse.

      Fabric Lifespan - 40+ Years

      When you use this landscape fabric under gravel or soil, it's engineered to last 40+ Years! . As long as the fabric is buried with at least 3 inches of gravel, mulch, or under roads, and away from UV sun exposure, this woven landscape fabric can last 40+ years.

      However, if the fabric is exposed to the Sun, the lifespan drops as low as one year.

      Professional Quality Heat Sealed Edges

      A common problem with landscape fabric is that the edges fray. The edges of Sandbaggy landscape fabric are heat sealed to prevent the fabric from fraying.

      Tips for Securing and Installing Landscape Fabric

      • Depending on how hard your soil is, separate each 6-inch sod staple between 2-4 ft. For very soft soil, separate each staple by 2 ft. For very hard soil, separate each staple by 4 ft.
      • For very soft soil, we recommend longer sod staples, such as 9-inch sod staples.
      • For very hard soil, we recommend thicker sod staples, such as 6" x 2" x 6" 9-gauge staples.
      • Tools required for landscape staples installation:
        • Rubber Mallet
        • Gloves

          Disclaimer: provided that the assumptions listed above are taken into account, this calculator can only be used to provide a rough estimate of the number of staples and rolls of landscape fabric required.
          Each case is different and requires your own personal judgment.

          How this staples/fabric calculator works


          Far more staples are required in soft soil than hard soil to properly anchor the landscape fabric in place.

          To be precise, in soft soil, install one staple every 1 foot. In normal soil, install one staple every 3 feet. In hard soil, install one staple every 5 feet.

          Landscape fabric

          The calculator assumes that landscape fabric is being used to cover every square foot of the plot of land.

          When rolling out landscape fabric, it's ideal to overlap the edges of the landscape fabric about 12%, so that weeds cannot grow in between the edges of the fabric.

          Landscape fabric should not be stretched straight over a dip in the ground.

          Rather, the fabric should be touching the ground at all times and should adjust to the contours of the land, such as bumps, dips, and hills.

          This allows you to walk on the installed landscape fabric without worrying about damaging it.

          Is geotextile fabric the same as landscape fabric?

          Typically yes. Geotextile simply means strong synthetic fabric which landscape fabrics are. However, some projects require special geotextile fabric with unique specifications such as a specific tensile strength. If you are not sure, simply email us and we can help. 

          What can you use instead of landscape fabric?

          There are no alternatives. If you are looking for a product to stop weeds or create a separation layer, landscape fabric is your only option.

          Can I just put landscape fabric over weeds?

          Yes, you can place landscape fabric over existing weeds or on top of weeds

          How wide can you buy landscape fabric?

          Sandbaggy sells landscape fabric as wide as 17.5 ft.

          What size is landscape fabric?

          Sandbaggy sells landscape fabric rolls from 3 ft wide up to 17.5 ft wide. Depending on the size of the landscaping area, some choose smaller rolls while others choose wider rolls. This is more just personal preference. A 3 ft wide landscape fabric roll will block weeds just as well as a 10 ft wide landscape fabric. 

          Here are all the different widths we sell for the Woven Fabric: 3 ft, 4 ft, 6 ft, 10 ft, 12.5 ft, 15 ft and 17.5 ft
