Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hunter landscape fabric -- stops weeds
good product and easy to use. Just lay it out, cut if necessary to fit your space, and cover with cedar mulch. I love it and would recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rob79602 Easy to work with and no weeds yet!
We had a ring around a front tree that was simply clogged with weeds. We needed to fix it quick for a house showing, so we bought this fabric and some plastic pegs to hold it down. It was easy to work with, even having to use it in a circle. We weed whacked down to the dirt, laid the fabric, pegged it, and put 3 inches of mulch on top, as per the instructions. A month has gone by, and nothing has poked up! Yay! The squirrels dig through the mulch and get to the fabric and are like "whaaat" but they haven't succeeded in ripping it up. It was a great bargain and thank goodness- no weeds! (Oh, and one tip- if you are putting flowers in through it- don't cut an "X" and shove them in. Cut a hole the size of the pot. The flowers need the breathing room) (and PS- the green little bits in the mulch in the pic are just some downed tree branches, not weeds!)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dickll Did not work for us on thin roots.
We removed the existing dirt and roots from two raised gardens, installed the barrier and refilled the gardens with Miracle Grow Vegetable Dirt. Within 12 months the roots had grown back thicker than before. The H/D garden guy said the roots were so thin that they grew back through the holes in the fabric.
Attached is a photo showing the barrier folded back to show roots growing completely thought it.

I would rate it zero if available. Weed and grass still grow thru in no time. It was a nightmare then to pull the weed or grass as the roots now grew thru the mesh which made it a 100 times harder to pull thru and the mesh tears, so pulling one weed ended up tearing a huge area!
Mine just like the photos other posted. I bought so many rolls, and I refuse to use them. Not even under the gravels or rubber mulch by my pond. I changed them all out with 3 to 4 layers of newspaper and I have no weed or grass came thru the newspaper since. It has been almost 2 years now, still all good!

I cleared a hillside full of weeds and vines. I left it uncovered for about 3 weeks and weeds were sprouting everywhere. I pulled the weeds again, and covered with the landscape fiber and it made a huge difference. It was covered for about 6 weeks before I planted and covered with mulch and there wasn't a weed in sight.
It's been about 4 months now and some weeds are starting to come through. However, I'd say the fabric prevented about 90% of the weeds from coming back.
I can't speak to the long term success of this, but it made a huge difference in the short term.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by landscapinglady Weedblock lives up to its name in multiple ways
In landscaping our side yard, the weedblock worked well not only in beds with shrubs but was the foundation for our new rock/stepping stone walkway. Easy to cut and overlap to create a blanket to smother grass and weeds before they have a chance in either the bed or walkway. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wane this product is great!
I bought a house that had river stones in a court yard. The problem is there wasn't any weed block and the rocks sank into the sand and now I have to dig them all out, and wash them to restore the court yard with the rocks. I am putting this under the rocks so I don't ever have to dig out rocks, not to mention... well hardly any weeds ever come through!

Our weed and grass problem became much worse once we put this weed blocker down. I would swear that our weed blocker was dipped in Miracle-grow. What a giant waste of time and money.
