The previous owners thought it would be nifty to bury a layer of landscape fabric several inches below soil level. As Kim works on this neglected flower bed on the north side of our front yard, we keep discovering more. He gets to pull it all out while I water and deadhead and soak other beds for an upcoming weeding session.
I’ve run into the evil fabric… literally… with my shovel… all over the yard. I’m not a fan of weeds, but I’m also not a fan of weed fabric. No wonder I haven’t seen very many earthworms.
When I do resort to using the stuff on rare occasion, I put it on TOP of the soil, followed by a thick layer of bark. Burying the fabric did nothing to stop bermudagrass and other weeds from establishing quite nicely.
