Product Introduction

 

 


Specs

Sandbaggy commercial grade landscape fabric is trusted by farmers and landscape contractors across this country. Manufactured with durable, polypropylene woven fabric, Sandbaggy landscape fabric meets or exceeds DOT standards for landscaping fabric.

We ensure that our heavy duty landscape fabric has at least 135 lbs of tensile strength, as well as UV inhibitors to ensure longevity after installation. Fabric is 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.

    Features

    • 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 grade landscape fabric.
    • STOP WEEDS: 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. 
    • KEEP SOIL IN PLACE: Weed barrier keeps your soil in place and prevents it from being eroded away during a rainstorm. Great for use under mulch or in a greenhouse. Sandbaggy Fabric is trusted by farmers across this country from reforestation farmers in Kooskia, Idaho on the West Coast to bamboo farmers in Lithia Florida on the East Coast
    • LAB TESTED & INSPECTED: Sandbaggy inspects and lab tests landscape fabric to ensure fabric meets tough quality standards using strict ASTM standards. This means that you can rest assured that you are ONLY getting the best fabric! Sandbaggy Landscape Fabric is trusted by landscapers and farmers across this great country!
    • SAFE FOR ORGANIC FARMING: All Sandbaggy fabric is safe for organic farming
    • Note: Rolls may be folded for shipping to fit within UPS size guidelines

    Fabric Lifespan - 40+ Years

    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.

    Description

    1. Professional Quality Heat Sealed Edges

    professional landscape fabric

    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.

    2. Securing Landscape Fabric

    Tips

    1. 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.
    2. For very soft soil, we recommend longer sod staples, such as 9-inch sod staples.
    3. 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

    3. Comparison with Competition

    4. Results on ASTM Test

    Every batch of fabric is lab tested to ensure consistency and quality throughout the fabric roll.

    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

    1. Staples

    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.

    2. 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.

    FAQ

    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. 

    Can you put landscape fabric over existing weeds or on top of weeds?

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

    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

    Will landscape fabric keep dirt from washing away?

    Yes, if the landscape fabric installed on top of the dirt, it would stop dirt from washing away. 

    How much does heavy duty landscape fabric cost?

    A roll of Sandbaggy 3 oz Woven Fabric 3 ft x 500 ft (or 1500 sq ft) is about $150. 

    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.
