Our Contractor Landscape Fabric is a standby for home gardening, landscaping, and commercial projects.
This “top shelf” product has become the only fabric sold in many Landscape Supply Yards, due to its durability and absence of call backs. This fabric has a 20-year prorated warranty when covered with a minimum of 3″ (8cm) mulch or aggregate as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Use Contractor Landscape Fabric for:
Remove existing debris and weeds. For existing beds, unroll the fabric and cut an “X” where each plant fits. Gently work the fabric down to the plant base and snug the cut flaps to the stem.
For larger plants, slit the fabric from the edge to the “X” and slide fabric around the stem. For new beds, unroll the fabric and cut an “X” where each hole is to be dug, and plant through. Overlap seams by at least 6″ (15cm).
For retaining walls and drainage, temporarily fasten one fabric edge overlapping the top of the wall so the middle of the fabric lays loosely at the wall base. Make a U-shaped envelope with the fabric and fill with drainage aggregate, bringing the loose edge of the fabric up to the top of the wall. Overlap first edge by 1′ (.3m) minimum. This will help prevent any silt from contaminating the drain or leaching through the wall.
For soil separation, remove debris from area, lay down fabric, overlapping edges by a 6″ (15cm) minimum, and cover with layer of aggregate.
Be sure to cover fabric with a minimum of 3″ (8 cm) of mulch or aggregate to protect from the sun’s damaging rays.
