Product Q&A


Q
I want to cover my entire 800 sg ft veggie garden. I plan to cut x's and plant right through the cloth as the weeding is too much for us. Is this the right product? I guess I would have to run the irrigation lines under the cloth?
A
You would be better off using our Polypropylene Ground Cover (GR-SB32) for your application. Cutting x's in the cloth means that you will be able to run your irrigation lines above the cloth.

Q
I am looking for a product to put on walkways between raised beds - then cover with gravel or mulch. Would this product be appropriate for this application or would there be something better?
A
Yes, the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier would be the appropriate product for this application.

Q
will this fabric let the water go through?
A
Yes, the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier is permeable.

Q
We want to use crushed shell for a driveway which has lots of weeds. Would this weed cloth be appropriate for this application?
A
Yes, the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier would work well for this application.

Q
I want to block all plant growth next to a building at a 3' width then cover with gravel. I want water to pass through.
A
We would suggest using the Rok-Kloth (GR-RK-BLK) for this application. Rok-Kloth is designed specifically for use under gravel or crushed stone and will suppress weed growth while allowing air, water and nutrients to pass through.

Q
I want to cover a 30ft by 30ft square with 2 to 3 inches of colored rock to block all weed growth, no plants or shrubs. Is this the best product to use in this situation?
A
We would suggest either the Dewitt Pro-5 or our Polypropylene Ground Cover (GR-SB32).

Q
It looks like you don't offer Rok-Kloth anymore so what would you recommend for a weed barrier that will have larger gravel on top of it?
A
We would suggest using the Dewitt Pro-5 or our Polypropylene Ground Cover (GR-SB32) for your application.

Q
What is the suggested overlap when installing? The area is approximately 32x50 and you don't carry that big of a roll.
A
Our master gardener suggested a 4" - 6" overlap when installing.

Q
Inside large greenhouses, on top of sharp sand floor, with rows of 300 gallon grow bags would this be product stand up to years of foot traffic?
A
Our master gardener stated that the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier should be able to be used for this application.

Q
Hello I have cleared a plot and want to kill off all growth by blocking sunlight and plant that plot at a later stage will this material do that?
A
If given appropriate time, this cloth will prevent plant growth underneath it and should kill any existing growth due to lack of sunlight beneath the material.

Q
Does the shiney side go on the bottom or top?
A
Our master gardener usually recommends installing the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier with the fuzzy/felt-like side of the fabric facing the ground.

Q
Does this product increase the soil temperature as a black mulch would do?
A
Our master gardener stated that the Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier may warm the soil temperature somewhat, however, he also stated that the temperature should not increase to the point of potentially harming the plants being grown, due to the breathable, woven design of the fabric.

Q
I am looking for a weed barrier that I can plant with and use on landscaping around the house and sidewalks to keep weeds away and will be putting rocks on top what do you suggest?
A
The Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier can be used in this application.

Q
Where are these manufactured?
A
The Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier is fabricated in China.

Q
Does this fabric have a fuzzy side or are both sides smooth? Looking for a fabric that I can use in a garden that is easy to remove and reuse each year. I have used fabrics that are fuzzy on one side and they stick too much to the soil when I want to pull them up again and some of the fabric rips off and stays in the soil.
A
The Dewtt Pro-5 Weed Barrier does have a felt-like backing. For a weed barrier fabric without this feature, we would suggest using the Polypropylene Ground Cover (GR-SB32).

Q
I want to use a weed barrier under fake grass to allow us to walk in our garden without working about weeds. Would you recommend this product for us?
A
The Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier should be able to be used in this application.

Q
Can I put walking stones on this fabric? will it rip the fabric with use?
A
The Dewitt Pro-5 Weed Barrier should be able to be used in this application.

Based on reviews I bought 2 rolls of this weed block. After 1 week we had lots of sedge growing through. Not happy that I not only have lots of weeds poking through but I've spent hundreds of $$ in weed block that does not work along with many hours of work to lay and cover with mulch. Would not buy again.

I have ordered this 5oz weed barrier before. I wanted to use the best possible protection from weeds I could find for my drought tolerant xeriscape. I had noticed that a lot of other products seemed inferior. We removed all grass and heavily stapled down the weed barrier. Still clover seems to come thru in places. I never remembered even having clover before! Anyhow no weeds other than clover and very few grass blades have ever come thru. The clover is a problem though. You have to cut the weed barrier to plant and even though we stapled it down again.... hello clover!

I used this for a huge area which I then covered with barkdust, it laid out nicely, and was easily fastened down with the metal anchors. Only thing I found interesting was the different colors of thread on the edges, as I had purchased exactly the same thing several times, and my understanding was that the color denoted the thickness, and longevity of the material.

I used the 8' rolls of the 20yr PRO-5 for my landscaping areas which are also covered by fine shredded rubber mulch. I have not seen any weed activity but centerpiece grass has no problems growing under and through this material . Infact it seems to thrive . Now instead of picking weeds I spend my time pulling shoots of grass which are growing through this material, it has even grown through where I had two layers. If you have St Augustine grass and you are thinking of using this material then save your money since there is no stopping it. For normal weed growth it has been great.

Excellent in all ways

We laid several tons of 1" rock in our front yard and this barrier never ripped. So far it's keeping the weeds out. We're very happy with this product and feel it was money well spent. Not that expensive considering what they want for a roll of thin barrier at home improvement stores.

It shipped on time and we were pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Definately 5 stars!

I have ordered this product 3 times. Twice the product was perfect, did what I wanted and has provided excellent service. 1 time the product delivered was of poor quality. It disintegrated almost immediately. Was unable to return leftover product. Still have it in my storage area as it is difficult to dispose of properly here in California. While I like the product when it is as specified, if you have concerns I would not buy it online because you cannot touch the material before purchase. Take it for what it's worth, it's a great product if you get the quality you order.

I bought this to cover a 50x50 portion of my field to grow lavender. I purchased the 12x250 folded fabric. I would recommend this as it was easy for FedEx and myself to handle. It cut easily with fabric shears, was in excellent condition and easy to use. You MUST order the anchor pins along with this. I did not and in a pinch went to Home Depot. The HD pins tended to bend, were hard to use and were 2" shorter than what I could have gotten here. if I could have waited for delivery, I would have, based on other reviewers. This fabric is great. I overlapped seams by a foot for weed control and the markings made this easy. First time buyer here and I am satisfied.

This beats sliced bread in my book even though it is a little pricey! I love that it breathes and lets the water go through. I am using it in my veggie gardens (huge ones) and it has made the job of weeding manageable - just the rows in between the cover and a tiny bit around each plant. Next year the whole garden gets it. Don't leave dirt on top of the cover because then weeds can get a hold through the top of it - I sweep it off with a broom.

This is the best weed barrier I've ever purchased. It does what its supposed to. The company I originally purchased the product from stop selling it because their contractors were willing to accept a cheaper quality weed barrier. They tried (in a heavy handed way) to get me to accept the same as everyone else, but I would have no part in that. I was grateful to have found the best here at Greenhouse Megastores and will continue to purchase top quality merchandise from this vendor in the future. The price is totally worth it and I received the product within 3 days, even though it had to come via freight. If quality is important to you, then you've come to the right place.

This product keeps weeds from sprouting unless you cover it with mulch. If you do weeds sprout in the mulch and send roots through the weed barrier causing a complete nightmare when yo try and pull the weeds out. I suggest you use an inorganic mulch like gravel to disguise the product

We purchased several hundred feet of the Pro-5 weed barrier to use between new raised beds. This was after buying weed barrier from other places that claimed to be tough. The others you could tear with your hands or light passed through them allowing weeds beneath them. This Dewitt weed barrier is far superior to any others we tried. It is substantial in weight. We have covered it with rock dust and it is doing a great job. We asked the salesman for the toughest most durable product and he recommended this. It was nice to find that it lived up to what we were told.
