Having gone through the experience of pulling out totally ineffective landscape cloth in two different homes in two different states, I can't emphasize enough how much I dislike its use. Thanks for providing warning to anyone who might be considering it for any area around their yards.

I also dislike landscape fabric. We spent a great deal of time pulling it out from in front of our house after we moved in a few years ago. It was degraded despite a good 2 or 3 inches of gravel on top of it, and there were plenty of weeds that managed to grow on top of it and through it. It was just an ugly mess. Once we got rid of the old fabric and moved all that gravel (a very UNfun job as you can imagine!) we now have a nice spot full of lavender, peppermint and small shrubs. Granted, I have to fight some weeds, but once the peppermint takes over, there won't be any weeds. I'd rather cut and pull the mint to keep it under control--at least it goes to good use in tea, etcetera!
