Prepare Area: Remove all weeds from the desired area. For added protection, apply preemergent herbicide before laying down fabric.
Place Fabric: Unroll fabric and cut to desired length. Fit fabric around plants, lights, etc., by cutting slits or an “X” where needed overlapping each section 4-6 inches. Secure fabric with SRW Fabric Staples, staggering 1.2 staples per square yard.
Cover Fabric: Cover with 3-4 inches of mulch, stone, or bark to protect fabric from sunlight and to enhance the appearance of your project.
