What weed barrier to use in pathways?
I have a garden with raised beds. Due to all of the spring rains/summer storms ALL of my mulch ran off this year resulting in horrific weeds between my beds.
I'd like to put a weed barrier down between the beds in areas which never get planted. I'll be covering the barrier with mulch.
I have several concerns about materials:
1) I need something which won't be slippery if the kids are on it - with or without mulch on top (ie it may drift away again if we get too many storms (slight angle/runoff in the garden area).
2) It should be water permeable so that rains and watering can seep through (not to water plants, just to prevent a pond from forming in the garden ).
3) It should be long lasting as opposed to short term degradeable.
If anyone has any suggested products and vendors, I'd appreciate the advice.
