Prevent Weed Growth
Laying down a weed barrier is one of the easiest and most effective ways to fight off weeds. Weeds will deface your landscape and prevent your lawn plants from growing properly. Installing a weed barrier will keep the weed seeds from germination. Since Howell Pathway weed barrier is breathable, air, water, and some nutrients will still flow down to feed desirable lawn plants.
Weed Barrier Can Be Installed Under Hardscape
Weed barrier works great under gravel, flagstone, granite, and other hardscaping materials. It can be installed as an underlay for your pavement, driveway, and walkways to prevent weeds from growing underneath them. It also helps to keep the paving materials from sinking into the muddy soil during wet seasons.
For Planting Trees
If you want to decorate your landscape with a tree, especially on very weedy land, installing a weed barrier can be beneficial for keeping the weeds down. This will help the tree become established since there will be less competition for nutrients and space. The barrier can be installed in a way that allows the tree to still get sufficient moisture and other nutrients. It can be removed when the tree is large enough to compete with the weeds successfully.
If your landscape is sloppy, heavy rain can wash out your soil and this will adversely affect the appearance of your lawn. Installing a semi-permeable weed barrier will allow just enough moisture to seep through the soil. This will prevent erosion and protect the soil surface from running water.
