Dewitt Weed Barrier Fabric

DeWitt White Landscape Weed Barrier Fabric specializes in areas that are typically very sunny. The thickness of this fabric makes it even less likely that deeply rooted weeds will be able to grow.

Prevent Weeds from Germinating

This is because the necessary sunlight is incapable of making it through to where the weeds are rooted. By preventing the sunlight to access the soil the fabric prevents the germination of seeds and helps stop weeds from growing.

How do Landscape Fabrics Prevent Weeds?

Many folks wonder how Landscape fabric work and if they really do anything to help prevent weeds from spreading or growing in garden beds and landscaping areas. For this we have dug in and have the answer.

Landscape Fabric interrupts the natural growth cycle of weeds and prevents seeds from germinating and reproducing. By stifling the growth cycle of unwanted plants landscape ground cover fabrics reduce the workload and time spent dealing with weeds. Fabric does not eliminate all the weeds, but greatly reduces the seed that get spread and germinate in the soil.

No matter how many weeds you have removed prior to the fabric installation of your landscape fabric, weed seeds from nearby areas can still be carried through the air and land in your garden. This is why it’s important to put down a piece of fabric and then be mindful of any new emerging weeds and take care of them before they continue the seed reproduction cycle.
Some have criticized this fabric saying that it seems unsightly to have fabric covering an entire landscape and for some, it could seem an unattractive prospect. It’s encouraged that if you’re not using the fabric in a greenhouse or a nursery setting that you place mulch on top of the fabric to hide it and provide a more natural garden bed look. Putting bark or heavy mulch can also change the Ph levels of the soil and make it harder for weeds to stick around.

  1. Dig out all vegetation. This can be done by using a shovel or hoe positioned at a 45-degree angle. Don’t be afraid to dig deep enough as you can always cover it up after the fact.

  2. Use herbicides as another method. However, this can be a little tricky because you have to use the right type and know the right time for the application to achieve its effectiveness. When shopping for herbicides, always read the label. If you want to learn which herbicide is best for your garden, you may read this article.

Typically, the matte texture of the landscape fabric should be facing down, while the glossy texture of the fabric should be facing up when laying the fabric. The matted side is designed to be faced down for better grip to the ground. Moreover, some fabrics have no difference on either side.

What Happens If I Install It Upside Down?

It won’t be the end of the world if you inadvertently lay it upside down, but chances are less moisture is going to penetrate.

Overlap your fabric

Overlapping the fabric up to 6 inches is also preferred and leave about 2 inches of overhang on the edges. You can then insert the fabric around the corners to conceal it and prevent it from getting blown by the wind.

Staking the Fabric in Place

A good thing to remember when installing the DeWitt Weed Barrier is to be sure to stake the fabric down with 6” galvanized or stainless-steel landscape pins. The pins will keep the fabric from moving or getting blown around by the wind during installation. By keeping the fabric in place, you can help ensure that seeds do not make it to the soil beneath.

In general, you can put a pin every 3 feet in each direction starting with the edges of the fabric first. You may need additional pin rows depending on the roll size. For example a 6’ wide roll will require 1 pin on each end of the roll and one in the middle, however, a 12’ wide roll requires 5 pins per row.

Useful for Xeriscaping and Rock Gardens

An overlooked application where landscape fabric really shines is Xeriscaping or places where there are mostly rocky beds with plants that do not require much watering. For installations like these, ground cover fabric is worth its weight in gold in helping prevent time spent outside weeding rock beds.

Xeriscape Low Water Landscape

Xeriscaping has become very popular in arid climates or places where water use is at a premium. This style of landscape veers from a traditional garden bed with shrubs and trees in that it is largely made from rocks, yes rocks. Many Xeriscapes look like riverbeds that are interspersed with decorative grasses and plants that require minimal water and are hardy. Arizona landscapes are a great example of this, where much of the landscape can be ornamental stone but the plants that are placed are drought resistant and do not require much water.
To best server this landscape a fabric is placed underneath the rock and holes are made in the fabric to accommodate Cacti or other grasses and plantings. By taking the extra step of adding landscape fabric under the rock you can help prevent the following arid weed varieties:

• Desert Broom
• Purslane,
• Pigweed,
• Tumbleweed
• Nightshade
• And puncture vine
