Mulch and Fabric
I see so many people say they don't like fabric. I have used it in past primarily under rock and it has seemed to work really well. Would anyone mind sharing why there is so many negative comments about weed fabric in these forums?
I am getting a large property ready to be a long term rental. It was completely overrun with ivy and blackberries and I have spent 6 months trying to get rid of it all. I have segmented off sections that include some rock landscape, some grass, but a lot of kind of natural space under trees. I want to keep it kind of natural looking. I really just want to put something down to keep the ivy and blackberries from growing back. I had thought that I would put down a lot of fabric and cover with mulch (I hate the look of red bark). Could anyone comment on the pros and cons of my plan?
