Comments about Recycled Plastic Weedblock:

Used it with the garden staples. Made a new garden over the old one and it works great as a new floor between the old garden dirt and the new soil. Now just waiting for my veggies.

Doesn't block weeds

        Comments about Recycled Plastic Weedblock:

        The only thing this actually blocks is your view of the weeds growing underneath it. The weeds are growing profusely. I'm hoping that at some point this summer, it will get hot enough underneath to cook the weeds.

          Comments about Recycled Plastic Weedblock:

          This product created a greenhouse effect, nurturing the weeds instead of killing them. I have more weeds growing under this weed paper than in the paths of my gardens with no treatment at all! The weeds are literally pushing the weed paper up and out of the way as they are growing profusely. I will need to remove all the paper, dig up all the weeds and lay down a better product, ugh!

          The mesh does not seem tight enough to block weed growth. The green color fits in well with visible garden.

          Translucent, Requires Other Mulch On Top

          • Garden

          Comments about Recycled Plastic Weedblock:

          This product is not pictured accurately - the actual product is a very light green, the color of Mountain Dew bottles spun into a film. Weeds very happily germinate and grow beneath it if used on its own. To be truly effective, it needs a thick layer of additional mulch on top of it, which utterly defeats the point.The sustainability of a product is very important to me, and I will gladly pay more for recycled/sustainable materials; however, buying this was like throwing [$] (for two rolls) right out the window. The product needs to transmit less light to discourage weed growth beneath it.

            The guy who cuts my lawn applied this fabric and then a couple inches of bark mulch under a dogwood tree where I had a major problem with perennial weeds (mugwort). 5 weeks later and none of the mugwort has come through (and nothing else has either)!

            The ad is misleading about the color of this product so I was not able to order it for the correct use. The recycled-plastic-weedblock is pictured as dark green though it is actually light green. Please fix this.

              Rebuilding an overgrown garden. Wanted a product that would let rain and nutrients into soil but which would effectively keep out weeds. Liked that it is made of recycled materials. Very thin, so we'll see in a year or two if it keeps the weeds down (covered with about 3 inches of wood chips so expect success).

                  Just got this for this season & I just put it down the other day. It was easy to use and I cut it with a utility knife. Then I put the cedar mulch all over it. We have had alot of rain in the past few days & everything is holding up fine. The mulch is still on it and it is not slipperly at all-thought it might be. I do love it so far but will have to see if the weeds come up.
