How to Install Landscape Fabric and Plastic

Step 4: Secure Landscape Fabric in Place
Secure the fabric with landscape staples, making sure the edges are secure. If you have cut slits for existing plants, overlap and firmly staple the cut edges, or cover the slit with a scrap of fabric. Any cuts in the fabric will allow weeds and grass to grow, so be sure they are well secured and covered.
