Description

Every gardener enjoys a beautifully landscaped yard, but keeping each area of the garden weed-free is time consuming and a drudgery. Preen Landscape Weed Control Fabric is a great low maintenance solution. Our non-chemical weed control product is an incredible time saver that lasts for years.

Ideal for new shrub beds and rock beds, Preen Fabric is a weed control fabric that inhibits weed growth, yet allows water to penetrate to enable desired plantings to thrive.

Since Preen Fabric is chemical-free, it is also a perfect weed prevention solution for vegetable gardens. Simply lay it down before planting, cut an X for each plant, then discard at the end of the growing season.

Preen Landscape Weed Control Fabric—nothing controls weeds longer and is chemical free.

Application

How to Apply

Preen Landscape Weed Control Fabric is an easy-to-install method of weed control. Simply, remove any existing weeds and grasses from the planting area. Unroll the landscape fabric with adjacent sections overlap 2 to 3 inches.

For new plantings, install weed fabric first, then cut X’s in fabric for plant placement. If existing plants are taller than 3 feet, cut weed fabric to the edge and slide around base of plant. If smaller plants are present, lay weed fabric on top of plants and cut an X or circle over each plant and gently push fabric over the top, down to the soil.

Anchor edges and seams with landscape fabric pins. Apply 2” to 3” of mulch or stone, deep enough to cover fabric. Since Preen Landscape Weed Control Fabric will not withstand UV rays alone, it must be covered to prevent degradation.

Where to Apply

Other uses for Preen Weed Control Landscape Fabric include patios, walkways, driveways, behind retaining walls, potted plants and under decks. Preen landscape fabric creates solid sub-base which stops cracking and keeps areas level. It will also help prevent erosion, allowing drainage and stops hydrostatic pressure on walls. Our landscape fabric also maintains the integrity of a drainfield and keeps dirt from moving out of a pot.
