Re: Re: landscape cloth was: Clematis problem

I only use landscape fabric under paths and occasionally for temporary
protection like the 2 months I had my good soil waiting to be moved from
it's temp location over maple roots to final destinations. But I'd like
to point out that there is Landscape Fabric and landscape fabric.
There's the cheap stuff that you can almost see through for short term
use and there's the 20-30 year stuff that's heavy as canvas. I don't
know that it lasts that long but I'm sure it does protect much longer
than the other. Another point to consider - I was going to replace the
landscape fabric here at my office because of all the weeds growing
through it, but I didn't have to. The weeds were actually growing in the
decomposed mulch that was on TOP of the fabric. They did penetrate the
fabric a bit, but the fabric was still intact after about 8 years.

their way through that stuff tho'.
