Description

This orange color landscape fabric will help you get your landscaping job done, with a choice of lengths from 100 to 500 feet.

1. Don't believe competitors' long life spans

Competitors will advertise that their landscape fabric lasts several years or longer. Usually, these numbers are unsubstantiated and misleading.

Depending on which part of the country you're in, the environment can be completely different, with large variations in weather and climate.

The fabric's lifespan will differ materially depending on the temperature. How is it possible that fabric can last 20 years in the outdoors?

2. Fabric can never stop all weeds

Other competitors claim that no weeds can grow through their 'heavy duty' weed barrier fabric. This is false advertising.

No matter how thick the weed barrier fabric is, certain weeds are still strong enough to break through the fabric. Our recommendation is to use herbicides to kill the weeds or pull them out by hand when they grow through.

ground cover weed control

Sandbaggy's ground cover has built-in UV protection, is made from 100% virgin resin to provide additional strength, is laboratory tested to meet ASTM test methods, and has undergone pre-shipment inspection for irregularities.

4. Installation: How to Lay Weed Barrier Fabric

weed barrier fabric installation

When installing this landscape fabric, use a rubber mallet and gloves. Install staples 2-4 feet apart for secure fabric installation. Softer soils will require additional staples.

Under Gravel

When installing weed barrier fabric under gravel, first clear the area of trash/sticks/rocks and etc. Then rake the area so it is as flat as possible. Once done, then roll out the landscape fabric and secure with landscape staples every 3-5 feet.

On Top Of Soil

Sandbaggy Landscape Fabric can be installed right on top of soil. If you have a thick layer of soil, we recommend using 9 inch or 12 inch landscape staples so the weed barrier fabric is securely fastened into the ground and cannot be moved. 

Around Plants

Sandbaggy Landscape Fabric works great around plants as well. All you need to do is use a pair of scissors and cut an 'X' on the fabric where you want to place the plant. 


FAQ

Is a weed barrier worth it?

Yes. Weed Barrier Fabrics are worth the money because they save the homeowner or property manager time from constantly removing weeds. In addition, if the homeowner is putting down gravel, adding a layer of landscape fabric not only stops weeds but separates the gravel with the dirt beneath. This keeps the gravel clean and free of dirt and creates a more beautiful landscape.

What is the difference between landscape fabric and weed barrier?

Landscape fabric and weed barrier are the same. Just different names for the same product. 

What can I use as a weed barrier?

We do not recommend using other household items such as plastic bags or newspapers as weed barrier. We recommend buying a commercial grade weed barrier fabric for the job. 

What is the best weed barrier to use under rocks?

For weed barrier fabrics used under rocks, we recommend using a weed barrier fabric with at least 100 lbs of tensile strength. This 100 lbs of tensile strength means that if you pull the fabric apart with your hands, it would take 100 lbs of strength to pull the fabric apart. Most fabrics from hardware stores such as Home Depot or Lowes only have about 25 lbs of tensile strength. 

Do you have to weed before putting down landscape fabric?

We recommend pulling the weeds before putting down the landscape fabric. It just makes for a cleaner job overall. 

How many layers of landscape fabric?

You should only use one layer of landscape fabric if the fabric is of quality. Make sure the fabric has at least 3 oz of weight and 100 lbs of tensile strength as a minimum. All Sandbaggy Landscape Fabrics have at least 135 lbs of tensile strength.

Be aware of many low quality weed barrier fabrics from Home Depot and other stores that will end up requiring multiple layers of fabric. 

How to keep weed barrier in place?

Weed barrier fabric is kept in place using Landscape Staples. Landscape Staples are pushed through the fabric and into the soil to keep the fabric from shifting or moving. 

We sell landscape staples from 4 inches long to 18 inches long. Shorter staples are used for harder/rockier soil while longer staples are used for soft/loose soil. Our most popular landscape staple is our 6 inch 11 gauge staple. 

Best way to lay weed barrier fabric?

When installing weed barrier fabric, first clear the area of trash/sticks/rocks and etc. Then rake the area so it is as flat as possible. Once done, then roll out the landscape fabric and secure with landscape staples every 3-5 feet.

Sandbaggy Landscape Fabric works great around plants as well. All you need to do is use a pair of scissors and cut an 'X' on the fabric where you want to place the plant.
