Hi, Experts

I am trying to get rid of these weeds. I tried to use some the weeds killer from LOWES, but it doesn't seem to work.

I plan to install the fabric landscape but I also found some people saying in the internet that it won't work.

Maybe just remove them by hand?

Any suggestions would help.

Thank you very much!!

Where are you located? What weed killer did you use? Did you try Roundup?
Which are the weeds? I see something that looks like Giant Blazing Star (a western native), some grass (and maybe Veronica?) but that's about it.

It doesn't look like you have that many weeds. You could just pull them out.

Weed cloth is a waste of your time and money. The weeds still come through and the cloth makes it impossible to get the roots out.

You are better off using a pre-emergent such as Preen. It keeps grass from germinating but not larger seeds (wouldn't do a thing for a bean). You will have to plant from pots for a couple months because you used per-emergent (the smaller the seed, the better the pre-emergent works).

Oh I wish I only had that small amount!
I pull after a good rain, I have been filling two large bins a week for the past month and I have added a lot to my compost piles too. Almost done. It's therapeutic! Green Grin!

What weeds?
The poa annua?
The thistle?
The hydrangea?
The salvia?

I think I'd go out there with a hoe, and after identifying what I had... Hoe the few things out... And then refresh the mulch... Should take 15 minutes.

You might want to wait for flowers on what you have... you might decide to keep it all.... Except maybe the poa annua...
