How to use landscape fabric
Landscape fabric works as a barrier so that weeds won’t grow in your flowerbed. Landscape fabric also allows water air, and nutrients to penetrate your soil, helping your plants or flowers grow easier. Read on to learn how to use landscaping fabric.
1. Prepare the soil and roll out the fabric on the raked bed. Place the plants on to the fabric and cut a cross making sure it is no larger than the diameter of the top of the plant pot.
2. Fold the four corners underneath and dig a planting hole, use a bucket to put the soil into as you work. This stops you leaving soil on the fabric, which could result in weeds germinating on the surface.
3. After planting ease the corners of the fabric around the plant. Firm the area down, water thoroughly and cover with about50mmlayer of bark, cocoa shells, decorative stone chippings, gravel or straw.
