You must cut through so the plant can grow
Yes, we had some plants growing in one area of the bed we wanted to put this barrier into but just cut out an area in one bed and put strips of the barrier around the plants in another bed. Worked well!
The plastic blocks water, so I guess it would sit there until it evaporates. Not sure what you were expecting..
Just mulch. If dirt is put on top of the weed cloth then weeds/grass will be able to grow on top of the weed cloth
Either way works since you are watering the soil. The fabric will allow water to go through the fabric to the soil if you place the soaker hose on top of the fabric.
You could use this if the children don't try to dig to China, but the sand itself should prevent weeds.
I don't see why not. I used mine to lay down under a tree and put rocks on top, has worked perfectly!
I assume so
No, that's not a good idea. There are better products available and made and available at Home Depot.
