Advantages of Weed Barriers for Your Garden

By: Tricia Craven Worley

There are two types of weed barriers that you can install in your garden to prevent any unwanted plant growth: plastic and fabric.

  • Fabric Weed Barriers: Will allow water through while blocking the sun from promoting weeds from sprouting up.
