I purchased this landscaping fabric to augment the surround on my Shishi Odoshi water/bamboo water feature. I was looking for an industrial material to go around the outside of the rubber pond liner to prevent weeds from coming up through the rocks that I was using to surround the pool. I cut the fabric and placed it in sections around the rubber liner. It laid on the ground perfectly and I put rocks on it. Since I just did this two days ago, I don't know if the weeds will come up or not. HD prompted me for a review today so I felt compelled to give them an update on the status of their product. In a nutshell, it cuts nicely and looks good laying on the ground. I would recommend this product to anyone wishing to build a Shishi Odoshi.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2seven I chose the pricier option.
this fabric is quite a bit heavier than the less expensive material, so I assume it will stand up to more replacement mulching than its lighter competitor.
it worked quite well under my hedges with just a pair of shears to slot it for the existing shrubs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenny Exactly what I needed
Bought this to put under landscape rocks on a hill to prevent the dirt from moving and weeds from growing. A little tricky putting down on a slope with the wind blowing but once it was down it worked great. Won't have to worry about weeds and water can penetrate but not flow very easily.

I have high hopes for this fabric. This one feels like actual cloth, no holes. Very rip resistant, I can't pull it apart with two hands, although it starts to stretch. Almost seems like the stuff inside fiberglass to me. The light gray color will be much less visible than the ugly black. High hopes, I will update in a year after it's been under river rock, see if it tears or breaks down. Very thin, can easily see through it, and obviously water permeable. I might hesitate to use this for retaining wall gravel filter, but french drain maybe...
I've previously used woven plastic landscape fabric... the black one with the green lines towards then end. They tend to break and unravel, and weeds got through that one within a year.

This grey version works better than the black stuff, but I did double up in some areas.

Bought this product after mulching wasn't enough to keep weeds out. One roll covers quite a bit of area and it was relatively easy to install. Just cut areas for your plants to pop out and cover with at least 3-4in of mulch which gives extra help to the fabric to block out the sunlight (as well as hide the fabric.) So far, I found no problems with this product.

The landscape fabric was easy to lay down. I just measured the length, cut with scissors, and laid it on the ground with holes for the existing plants. Held it down with blocks of wood until I got the wood chips (they recommend bark) spread on top of it.
If I want to add more plants, it's just scooping the wood chips away and making a cut big enough to put the new plant in.
It may look thin, but it is tough stuff.
