Question: Planting shrubs/ trees

Hi ,
How close to the tree/ shrub trunk could I put a lawn fabric?


Answer: The weed barrier fabric can go within a few inches of the stems or trunks; since you'll probably be putting mulch on top of the weed barrier, this will help you keep the mulch material from resting against the trunks (which could hold too much moisture and cause rot). Best wishes with your landscape!
