The Q&A Archives: Controlling Weeds

Question: which ground cover is best for weed control. mulch, bark, stone, or that orangy looking lava rock? i have already put down the mesh netting.. thanks

Answer: Using weed barrier cloth will keep sunshine from reaching the weed seeds in the soil and they won't be able to sprout. Anything that you put on top is purely for decorative purposes so choose the one that appeals to you most. The real workhorse is the weed barrier fabric beneath the covering. Best wishes with your landscape!
