Many of you have heard of landscape fabric, but we wanted to tell you why we DON’T recommend it.

1. The fabric deteriorates after about 6 months

2. The areas around the plants that don’t have fabric still allows weeds

3. It hinders water from getting to your plants’ roots

4. It limits oxygen getting to your plants

5. Fertilizer tends to collect on top of the landscape fabric instead of going into the soil

6. After about 6 months, weeds start growing on top of the landscape fabric anyway

Overall, it’s just not worth it in the long run, especially if you decide you want to remove it later on. If you have any questions, let us know below. Do you have any landscape fabric horror stories?
