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:
- In addition to landscape beds and vegetable gardens, other uses for Preen® weed control landscape fabric include patios, walkways, driveways, behind retaining walls, potted plants and under decks. Preen® landscape fabric creates a solid sub-base which stops cracking and keeps areas level. It will also help prevent erosion, while allowing drainage.
