Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HDFan Disapointed
I bought this Dalene weedblock fabric because I though that with what it has been saying as 100% lab test, double layer, not biodegradable, etc.... I won't need a 2" mulch cover on top ot it as being required by other manufacturers. But when I received it and read on the its label, I found that it also does require a 1" to 2" thick much on top, in order to be eligible for its 20-year warranty. Therefore, this so-called Dalene manufacturer has put me in a gray area between using and not using the fabric. And I have decided to return it to have the peace of mind.

This Dalen fabric did NOT prevent the weeds from growing through it. I wasted my hours of labor and $200.00 I paid to have the work completed. Wish I found something else that worked better.

Not much to it, it's exactly what you'd expect. Would buy again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by samiam Jury is still out!
It was as I expected. I purchased based on price and longevity in the ground.
Water tends to run off rather than go thru,
So far is keeping weeds out.
Tends to tear easily, I will be impressed it this last as long as they claim.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GardenGal It's not a row cover
Silly...it is designed to be put on & nailed to the ground, not used as a floating row cover. Try tulle from the fabric or craft store instead.
With landscape fabric, you level the dirt/base. You apply landscape fabric. You put your planting mix goes on top of it, plants in the mix.
TYPICALLY, you have 1 foot overlap for strips, so this would cover less than 300 SF.
Do it once, do it right, and be weed-free from those that come up from the dirt below.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LadySLBenz84 Used As Base Under New Raised Garden
I used this landscaping fabric as a base under a new raised garden I put together. Although it was a windy day, laying it down and using the Dalen "Garden Staples" to secure it in place made it a smooth project. So far, no weeds ! I found the fabric to be a good, durable weight and feel confident it will do the job of killing the weeds and keeping them out of my garden.

I bought a 300 ft.roll of this to use for row covers in my garden and the weeds are thriving under it and tearing right through in just 5 weeks.I needed to get more fabric because I was short some.Went to Walmart and picked up some Preen fabric and it works great for the same price.Wish I could get my $$ back from DALEN.
