Biodegradable landscaping fabric
My front yard was a mess: bad grass, weeds, and moss (yes, moss!). So I decided to make it into a garden (probably mostly plants for shade).
I sprayed the area, tilled it, and removed the chunks with green in them, but I'm still afraid I'll be overwhelmed with weeds after I have planted my new shrubs and perennials.
I thought of putting landscaping fabric, but I read that that can keep plants from thriving (nutrients not being absorbed.) So I was wondering if maybe using a biodegradable landscaping fabric would be the solution, placing it under the new top soil I plan to order next week. And later, putting bark on top.
I found this: http://www.rona.ca/shop/~landscape-biodegradable-landscape-fabric-easy-gardener-326174_horticulture_shop
What do you think? Have you tried this kind of landscaping fabric?
