Pro-5 Weed-Barrier is the industry”s best 5 ounce, woven, needle punched, polypropylene fabric designed for professional and commercial use. It conserves soil moisture, increases growth, and prevents unwanted weeds from germinating. Twelve inch spaced, colored lines make for easy plant alignment. The fabric is almost 100% opaque to prevent the photosynthesis and seed germination of weeds and reduces the need for herbicides.
In the years I have been doing xeriscapes, I have tried a lot of different weed barriers from many different companies. The best barrier I have come across is Pro 5 weed barrier by Dewitt. Many of the cheaper less “thick” weed barriers degrade in just a couple of years and then it becomes necessary to do the tedious process of removing the mulch or stone from the top of the barrier, removing the degraded barrier, and re-installing a new barrier. I have had this weed barrier installed on projects for 8 years, and it is still holding up great.
Pros – Durability. The colored lines on the barrier for easy alignment of plants.
Cons – More expensive than other types of weed barrier
