Use Landscape Fabric Under Gravel For Road Construction
Sandbaggy 8 oz Non Woven Geotextile Fabric is the perfect landscape fabric to use under gravel! Often used as an underlayment for parking lots, driveways and gravel roads, this fabric helps stabilize the soil as well as create a separating layer between the soil and aggregate.
In August 2021, a large farm in Oregon installed over 500,000 square feet of this Geotextile for their gravel road construction project.
Commercial Grade Fabric Lasts 50+ Years!
Sandbaggy commercial grade geotextile fabric is engineered to last up to 50 years! Just make sure this fabric is buried under at least 3 inches of gravel or mulch, or is buried under roads to keep it away from constant UV sun exposure.
Excellent Paver Underlayment Fabric
Installing Sandbaggy 8 oz Non Woven Geotextile under your pavers is critical to the success of your paver system. According to the ICPI (The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute), they recommend installing a geotextile fabric under pavers in all clay soil applications. By separating the subsoil with the base material, this Geotextile helps strengthen the road base, while reducing the chance of the paver system failing.
This permeable fabric also allows water to flow-through the fabric, reducing water runoff during rainstorms. This industrial grade fabric is manufactured to be used under driveway pavers where large trucks and vehicles can run on it.
Great for ALL paver/stone projects like:
- Pool Decks
Use Under Geocell
Use Sandbaggy 8 oz non-woven geotextile as a geocell fabric! Our fabric works great under geocells to provide additional support and stability to the structure. The geotextile acts as a barrier, preventing soil or other materials from shifting or settling underneath the geocell, distributing the load evenly across the structure. This improves the structure's overall strength and stability, reducing the risk of failure or collapse, and also filters out sediment and other contaminants from water flowing through the structure, maintaining the quality of surrounding water resources.

Protect your property against erosion with Sandbaggy 8 oz Non Woven Geotextile Fabric. This thick fabric absorbs and dissipates wave velocity so the underlying rock or sand is protected.
Rip Rap Underlayment
Non-woven geotextile fabric is a valuable choice for rip rap applications due to its specific characteristics. The fabric acts as a reliable separator, preventing the mixing of different materials and ensuring the proper placement and distribution of rip rap stones. Additionally, the non-woven geotextile fabric offers excellent filtration properties, allowing water to pass through while preventing the migration of fine particles, thereby maintaining the stability and longevity of the rip rap structure. Its high tensile strength and resistance to punctures further enhance the durability and overall effectiveness of the rip rap system.
Use Sandbaggy Landscape Fabric As A Weed Barrier
Sandbaggy non woven geotextile fabric rolls make a great weed barrier in your garden. They are able to completely cover and protect your garden, allowing water to get through to your plants, while preventing weeds from growing. You can install the fabric above or under mulch.

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.
Comparison chart of Sandbaggy's ground cover and competitors'
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.
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.
In the Press
Sandbaggy has been written up by Fox, Daily Herald, MarketWatch and other news outlets for leading the industry with American made fabric.
What is non-woven geotextile fabric used for?
Non-Woven Geotextile Fabric is used for many applications including farming/gardening, french drains, landscaping, road stabilization, drainage installations, rip rap, retaining walls, and volleyball court construction.
Woven vs non woven geotextile? Which is better woven or nonwoven geotextile?
Nonwoven Geotextile - because nonwoven provides superior strength as well as water permeability (at least 100 GPM per sq ft). Meanwhile, woven fabric only provides superior strength but very little water permeability.
We sell both types of fabric because woven fabric is more economical compared with nonwoven fabric.
What is nonwoven geotextile?
A Nonwoven Geotextile is a soft & thick felt like material that is made from millions of polypropylene fibers. Sandbaggy Non Woven goes through our proprietary manufacturing process that transforms millions of loose polypropylene fibers into strong and flexible nonwoven geotextile.
Does geotextile fabric let water through?
Only Non Woven Geotextile Fabric allows water to go through the fabric. Sandbaggy Non Woven Geotextiles allows 100 gallons per minute of flow-through every square foot of the material! Woven Geotextiles do not though.

Hardscape weed barrier
Creating eco-friendly hardscape by removing invasive pachysandra ground cover, installing weed barrier, replacing with crushed stone. This Sandbaggy product is remarkably easy to measure, cut and install compared to flimsy stuff sold at box stores. It was recommended by the local nursery. This project has recaptured over 200 square feet of usable land that had been overtaken by ground cover.
Great, strong product with a great water pass-through rate
Great product. Unfortunatly I had about 1/2 of my landscaping complete on a 1acre yard before I found this product. I had a grading and drainage plan done that I'm following for the landscaping which calls for several large dry retention ponds and multiple swales directing the water. I had bought the best landscape fabric that I could find at my local landscape shops, but really didn't like the durability. I found Sandbaggy and started using it for a very large dry retention pond and swales. I'm still using some of the other fabric I already purchased on the less critical areas. I do need high drainage in all the swales and retention ponds. You can see a picture of the larger retention pond where we are placing 4-8" rocks on top of the Sandbaggy geotextile landscape fabric. The rocks don't punch through the fabric like it does with the "professional" landscape fabric purchased locally. The swales in the pictures also have Sandbaggy fabric under the 2-4" rocks.
French Drain installation
I was having some dampness on rainy days and full blown lakes in my finished basement on super rainy days. I order the Non-Woven Filter Fabric 8 oz - Landscape Fabric. It is unbelievable tough fabric, I could barely cut it, which is great, it will last a long time. I have had a few rain storms since I installed it as part of my French Drain and so far, not a hint of moisture, I am happy with my purchase and outcome.
French Drain Fabric
I use this in all of my French Drain installations. We are able to dump rock on this fabric with our loader and not have to worry about it ripping. It is extremely tuff stuff. The best part is seeing the water come through with no problem even with it's thickness and strength.
