This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Preventing invasive plant life from taking over the yard doesn't have to involve paving stones or toxic herbicides. Just roll out a length of landscape fabric from our selection of barrier materials to keep weeds and other unwanted vegetation out while letting water and nutrients through, so you need not worry about dandelions on your walkway or grass infiltrating the flowerbed. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best weed barrier on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018:

Sought to provide as much diversity as possible, with natural burlap, as well as multilayered needle-punched and non-woven landscape fabrics, some with stripes marked and pre-cut holes for row alignment. Noted offerings in various lengths, widths and thicknesses, plus suitability to different applications.
