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

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. Our landscape fabric also maintains the integrity of a drainfield and keeps dirt from moving out of a pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked well and easy to use I pinned down the landscape fabric then poked holes where I wanted to plant my sweet potatoes. All growing season the weeds were kept away and the fabric gave a nice surface to spread out the vines as the sweet potatoes grew!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! I purchased this several months ago & was able to put it down in my garden bed on the few beautiful days we've had in Northeast PA at the end of April/early May. So far it's doing a pretty good job of controlling weeds However, several of my plants have died or are on the verge of doing so. I can't be sure if the Preen fabric is to blame for smothering them or drowning therm by keeping in all of the rain we've experienced. I guess time will tell with the replacement plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Senior Citizen Alert When I found Preen Landscape fabric, I fell in love. As a senior citizen, our days of weed pulling are gone. But now, I lay it down, it's been 4 years now and it is still doing it's job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves work! I bought this product because I was so tired of weeding. I put perennials in the ground. I cut small holes in the fabric and placed the plants in through the holes. It was a little work to do this, but well worth the trouble. It has cut my work way down. Mulch is on top the fabric and seeds to do not get started. Have continued to use this product every time I make my gardens larger. I do have beautiful weed free flower gardens.
