Heavy Duty - Our Fabric Lifespan is 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.
Heat Sealed Edges
A common problem with landscape fabric is that the edges fray. The edges of Sandbaggy 4 foot wide landscape fabric are heat sealed to prevent the fabric from fraying.
Landscape Fabric Installation
Tips for installing 4' wide 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
Comparison with Competition
- UV Protection: added to fabric
- Made from 100% virgin resin: provides additional strength compared with recycled resin
- Laboratory tested: to meet ASTM tests
- Pre-shipment inspection: fabric inspected for irregularities and breakages before shipment
Results on ASTM Test
Every batch of fabric is lab tested to ensure consistency and quality throughout the fabric roll.
- UV Protection: ASTM D4355 - at least 80% strength after 500 hours
- Tensile Strength: ASTDM D4632 - 135 lbs
- Meets Class 2 & Class 3 requirements for Woven Geotextiles
Tough Woven Polypropylene
Our woven polypropylene landscape fabrics are extremely strong with a tensile strength of 135 lbs! This makes them ideal for placing under rocks or gravel. Because this fabric is woven, it makes it extremely difficult for weeds to grow through the fabric.
Woven landscape fabrics are ideal for applications such as weed control, soil separation, and soil stabilization. They are not permeable, so if you need something for filtration or drainage we recommend using non woven landscape fabric.
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.
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.
Protect Against Weeds and Install Landscape Fabric Under Mulch
This customer installed Sandbaggy landscape fabric under mulch to prevent weeds from growing in their field.
Used For Vegetable Garden
Place landscape fabric on top of soil or mulch and allow your vegetable garden to flourish without the presence of weeds. Just cut holes in the fabric for your plants, which allows them to get ample water and sunlight and simultaneously block the sunlight for potential weeds.
