Playground Landscape Fabric


Landscape Fabric

Why Use Landscape Fabric?



It is essential to lay landscape fabric beneath mulch when constructing a playground because landscape fabric is one of the best weed stoppers for a playground. Landscape fabric acts as a weed barrier and prevents heavy mulch, such as shredded rubber mulch, from sinking into the soil when the ground gets wet. By laying out landscape fabric, you’ll make your layer of mulch last longer.
