The use of weed mats in gardens and around flowerbeds truly helps control the spread of existing weeds and virtually stops the growth of any new ones. Using a weed mat in your flower bed almost always ensures piece of mind.
Determine the size of the flowerbed area. Decide on what type of weed mat barrier will best suite the needs of the project. Some use woven or non woven. These alternatives also allow for rainwater to pass more effectively.
Remove as much debris and weeds as possible from the flowerbed site. Weed mats simply kill weeds underneath them and actually condition the soil favorably.
