Question:  What Is The Best Garden Fabric Available?

 

Answer:  The Dewitt Sunbelt Ground Cover Weed Barrier

Looking at all the makers of garden fabric, I put this one at the top of the list!  The Dewitt Sunbelt Ground Cover Weed Barrier is truly a product that I am happy to review.

Dewitt Sunbelt Ground Cover garden fabric made with woven polypropylene

PROS

Made of woven 3.2 ounce polypropylene, this product is so much sturdier than any other garden fabric and, it will last much longer, too!  It is not the typical ground cover.  Dewitt has a thicker, 5 ounce polypropylene garden fabric but, it is overkill since this 3.2 ounce version works exceedingly well!

Both air and water will pass through it but the weeds won’t come up.  And, this garden fabric will keep most bugs, like the nemesis of carrots…the dreaded carrot rust fly…from reaching the plants to lay their eggs.

CONS

The only issue I have with this polypropylene garden fabric is that the ends tend to unravel wherever it is cut.  But, that is normal for this type of material.  I fix this the same way I fix the unraveling of my polypropylene ropes…either heat sear the edges or tape them.  After that, there is no problem.

 

Protect Your Garden Plants

Dewitt Sunbelt Ground Cover Weed Barrier

This garden fabric is an excellent weed barrier and plant protector for both backyard gardens and greenhouses.  It strongly resists tearing and puncturing.  It is UV stabilized and guaranteed to last five years in direct sunlight.

There are yellow guide strips 12 inches apart to aid in cutting the material or aligning the plants.

Pricing fluctuates all the time.  But, for the sake of argument, if the Dewitt SBLT3300 Sunbelt Ground Cover Weed Barrier happens to be priced at around $75 for a 3 foot wide x 300 foot long roll,  that means the cost per linear foot would be less than $0.25!  You definitely can’t beat that price for this quality level!

I definitely want more information and pricing about the Dewitt SBLT3300 Sunbelt Ground Cover Weed Barrier.

My Recommendation: Always keep a couple rolls of this Dewitt garden fabric in your gardening tools arsenal.

    This is just what my father need for his garden. He is always having troubles with weeds and insects. The only thing that I was curious is does this product eventually break down into the soil or do you need to dispose of it after it becomes unusable? Thank you for giving my father a good solution to his problem.

      Every gardener needs a roll of this garden fabric. It is not biodegradable since it is guaranteed to last for 5 years. But, your father should get a lot of use out of it.
