Some of my yard goes crazy with weeds.... Getting tired of it. Thinking of laying new fabric down. The previous owner or the builder didn't seem to overlap it very well so the weeds are in lines.
Considering re-doing it in sections. What brand do you recommend for a decent price.
Picked up some sand and pea gravel today at Pioneer sand and they have some... Didn't check the brand while I was there. While doing the work and thinking about what I wanted to do with the back I considered it.
Prices are:
3'-50' 11.95
3'-300' 60.95
4'-100' 31.95
4'-300' 80.95

Thanks guys! All rock here! Hell with that grass will live in a desert. :D :D >:D

I'll be watching this thread closely. I eyeballed some of that stuff at lowes the other day and thought it was mad expensive. I am going to need a bunch of this because the majority of my back yard will be rocked. Tired of the dust.

Get the stuff that looks like Felt its called Typar and it is expensive there is no cheap route for good weed fabric.. The cheap black mesh stuff at Home Depot is crap. Remember no weed fabric is 100% there will always be weeds to some extent. Spray them with Round Up Pro a few times a year and you should be good. If your rock is dirty when you install it over the fabric you will definitely have to deal with weeds. Once that rock gets rained on a few times that little bit of dirt that wash's off is all weeds need to get going.

Cedar mulch is more weed proof then rock and easier to deal with weeds but then you have the maintenance of mulch to deal with.

I've used the fabric costco carries. It's MUCH less expensive than home depot. I think it's a 4' x 200' roll for about $30, and includes some staples. I can't find a link for it, but it's a good price and works really well. I had it in my old yard, and it did a great job for the 4.5 years I lived there.

You can get this cheaper through a asphalt company if you know someone...

Yea or just go to the plant its located in Englewood. Buying the wider rolls saves you in the long run and makes the install go alot easier.
