You can get more from Doug at http://www.douggreensgarden.com. Landscape fabric in the garden is one of those garden practices that I think is highly overrated and completely non-essential in most cases, and downright bad gardening in others. Here’s the deal. When you put landscape fabric in your garden, you immediately stop any soil organic matter from getting to the soil and improving it. You pretty much choke off soil improvement because you can’t replace the organic matter that’s being consumed by the soil processes. The plastic stops the mulch from replenishing it. Landscape fabric installation is recommended by many landscapers on the basis of stopping weeds. What they don’t tell you is that weeds will germinate quite nicely on top of the mulch and if you don’t get them right away, their roots will weave themselves into the fabric making them very hard to pull up. I’ve been asked about putting landscape fabric in the vegetable garden and that, again, is no place for this product. Vegetables depend even more on high organic matter content of the soil and landscape fabric stops that. Note that putting landscape fabric in the garden is not a sustainable gardening practice. So, while landscape fabric installation is beloved of landscapers and designers, it is not good for the soil, doesn’t save much work and isn’t sustainable. And that my friends is what I think about landscape fabric. Video Rating: / 5
