Answer: Prior to planting I would mix compost into the soil. Then lay your weed barrier and cut holes or X's where you want to plant. After planting, spread bark or other organic matter over the weed barrier landscape fabric to disguise it and to help your hosta and bergenia roots stay cool and moist. As your plants grow you may need to enlarge the openings in the weed barrier. Best wishes with your landscape!
