Robert,

Some of those landscape fabrics are better than others when it comes to blocking weed growth. You might try a different product for a better effect. It would also be a good idea to use a herbicide to kill weeds in the area for a couple of applications to minimize the weeds in the area. If the weeds are nutsedge they will poke through most any landscape fabric and must be controlled with sprays done repeatedly over a period of time.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
