Does it seem like no matter how much time you spend in your garden, weeding borders and tending to perennials, more weeds just always pop up? It's a never ending job, particularly for gardens that are naturally full of nutrients that make plant life thrive. Weed control fabrics, also sometimes referred to as plant covers, are material that cover an area to prevent unwanted plants from emerging. You can even cut holes in these fabrics to allow your chosen varieties to grow through. You can find fabric in a range of price and brand options by shopping at Gardeners Dream, as well as different weights. The weight of the fabric is especially important. Our horticulturalists recommend this as a rough guide:
50gsm non-woven spunbonded weed fabric - excellent for beds and borders.
100gsm woven fabric - ideal for under patios, driveways, and pathways, whether they are gravel, bark, or other.
125gsm woven or plastic fabric - best suited for particularly heavy duty jobs during landscaping.
Woven (or not, as is the case for bedding and border fabrics) in a range of different length and shape options, the fabric on this page is designed to help you get rid of pesky green weeds growing around the parking bay, along pathways, and even in carefully curated flower beds. By allowing water to access the topsoil to nurture your chosen plants, but blocking sunlight around them, spunbonded fabrics can save you a lot of time weeding by preventing the weeds from thriving in the first place. Check the size and usage information, as well as customer reviews, before purchasing the fabric you need. Then just add to basket and save on delivery - no need to collect from the gardening centre!
Growing a lawn isn't easy, even with our strong lawn fertiliser providing all the ideal nutrients. If you are thinking of using a sheet of artificial grass, we recommend placing some 100gsm weed control fabric beneath it. This weed control prevents dandelions, daisies and general plant pests from breaking through but is strong enough to handle walking over. We are the best supplier of these fabrics in the UK - shop our website for free delivery to any address.
Many of the items on this page are designed to be used under paths, driveways and other areas that will later be covered in gravel or stones. The thickness of the fabric isn't too light that it can be easily torn by hard objects placed on top, but it will help you deter weeds from emerging between cracks. View all the strong cover fabric in our store, in a variety of size and brand options. 100gsm will usually suffice, but you can also use a heavy duty 125gsm cover for extra weed protection. Don't forget to order enough pegs before you pass your purchase over to our team to be delivered for free.
To apply weed control fabric in your garden, we recommend measuring the soil area that requires weed control before you start shopping. Once delivered, you can get the job done in an afternoon.
Before you make a choice about the brand and purchase weed control fabric, make sure you mark out the area in your garden. This allows you to calculate the sizes of membrane you need.
Next, clear the area. This may be easy if there are few items in the way, especially if you are in the landscaping phase of garden development. You want to remove all unwanted plants and tidy up any desirable plants that need to poke through. Weed killer may seem ideal, but it will remain in the soil for longer than expected once a fabric is covering it, so our horticulturalists recommend weeding by hand.
Unroll the product and lay it over the area, cutting holes for any green plants to poke through. Depending on the brand, some weed control fabric types may need to be trimmed to the size of gardens and others overlapped - check the instructions for details.
Fix the membrane in place using pegs. If these aren't provided with the product, you can find them among our range of items and save on delivery. Depending on the size of your fabric, you may need quite a few pegs. Once pinned, you can cover with driveway pavement, bark, gravel, or any other decorative compost alternative.

A fabric membrane product can save a lot of time weeding and is great for driveways, paths, and flower beds with a small number of items - when you cut many holes in the fabric, the likelihood of weeds goes up. View our range for the most effective weed fabric product options.
Fabric is designed to save time weeding over several years by providing a long-lasting cover, while a plastic product will typically kill plant life and break down (or rip) in a short time frame. You can find both varieties in our shop at a range of price points and with different brand offerings.
Weed control fabric can also be called weed covers, weed fabrics, landscape fabric and simply plastic sheets. All these product types are roughly the same and many can be found in our shop - view the full range now. The price and quality can differ from one to the other, so reach out to our horticulturalist team if you need advice!
View the area you want to cover in your garden and measure it out, then shop for enough fabric to cover that area allowing for overlap. Most product options won't be a direct fit, so order more than you need and save the leftovers for your next gardening project.
