Felt Landscape Fabric



Landscape felt is crucial in keeping a separation layer between the soil below and your project. The felt landscape fabric is designed to be placed in gardens, flower beds, and washouts to help prevent the spread of weeds.

This geotextile planting fabric is permeable letting water pass through enabling existing plants to get the nutrients they need. The fabric works to block weed spreading by preventing the weed seeds under the fabric from getting proper sunlight to germinate. By preventing germination, the landscape fabric acts as a weed block in your landscape. Our felt landscape fabric is commercial grade and is used by professionals in both residential and commercial applications.

This fabric is easy to install and can be easily cut with either construction scissors or with a razor knife.

We offer multiple roll sizes and weights to match your project’s needs.

Do These Fabrics Drain Water?

Most drainage fabrics on the market claim to be permeable with a high water flow rate. Specification sheets show flow rate but it can be difficult to translate the testing numbers into a real world example.

Landscape Fabric - Types and Applications

Landscape fabric is created to serve as a barrier between the soil and the sun. It's designed using woven fibers or non-woven material and is available in rolls. In some cases, the fabric is called a weed block or weed barrier and is well-known to stop weed growth by preventing soil-bound weed seeds from getting sunlight. In turn, it's a great way to reduce the use of herbicidal weed control.

The Advantages

Landscape fabric offers many benefits outside of keeping weeds under control. Its sun-blocking capabilities will help soil retain moisture by reducing evaporation. This fabric offers support and some measure of erosion control in areas that are known for washouts caused by heavy rain. It serves as a great barrier beneath hardscaping and will prevent inorganic mulch like rocks from sinking into the soil.

The Disadvantages

Just like all products, landscape fabric also comes with disadvantages. It does not completely eliminate all weeds. Even though it does eliminate weed seeds in the soil from growing, it can blow seeds into the mulch above the fabric allowing them to sprout there.

Over time, organic mulches such as wood chips, will decompose and create a compost that is perfect for weeds to take root. Your best bet is to apply a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent this from happening.

If the disadvantages are things you don't want to deal with, you can always use cardboard, burlap, newspapers, or other materials.

If you believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, there are several kinds of fabric to choose from to get what you need. We can help you make a good choice.

When You Should Use Landscaping Fabric

Landscape fabric is usually placed beneath mulched areas around trees, bushes, and shrubs. It's laid over soil and then mulch is placed and layered on top of the fabric. It works really well under gravel, rock, hardscaping, and under flower beds, and ground cover to reduce weeds without the use of weed control.

Please Note

Do Not Use landscape fabric under vegetable gardens or flower beds that house annuals because frequent replanting will be very difficult.

Different Types Of Landscape Fabrics


Woven landscape fabric is the most popular type of landscape fabric and is broadly used. It's made from polypropylene or linen fibers that are woven together to create a durable, semi-permeable material. Woven landscape fabrics have small holes to let water and nutrients seep through to the soil while still preventing weeds from growing.

This fabric is best for weed control around trees, shrubs, and flower beds with plants that will not be changed out too often. Woven fabrics usually come in black, green, brown, or natural burlap. Most of these fabrics are treated for UV resistance or are UV stabilized to hold up under the sun.

Spunbound Fabric

This is a non-woven fabric that is made from layers of bonded polyester fibers making the material extremely durable and very difficult to rip or tear. The thickness varies so it's great for many different uses.

The thinner versions have a spun-bonded nature that is permeable to water and air while still remaining tough and durable. Not only does this fabric work well as a weed barrier in beds and under rocks but can be used as a protective border to discourage pests, insects, and invasive grasses. This is a very versatile fabric.

The thicker fabrics are extremely tough and impermeable for use in irrigation, drainage, and retaining wall applications to avoid roots and prevent seepage.

Non-Woven Fabric - Felt Landscape Fabric

This type of landscape fabric very popular for both it’s strength and water permeability. The felt-like material is available in a wide variety of different thicknesses and is a great fabric to use in areas where moderate-duty weed control and drainage are both required.
