Very Slow Rate Of Water Permeability
Gardner_1 - 4 months ago
The product is a thin fabric type that is easy to cut and fit. I installed as directed under about an inch of decorative stone. When it rained I noticed pooling of water above the stones. The purpose of this fabric is to stop weeds, but allow water to penetrate to water the plants. I then tested the water permeability of the fabric on both sides. On one side, (the incorrect way) after two hours, no water passed through. On the correct side, after 45 minuets about 10ml out of 20ml had passed through. This is a problem, as the rain water will just roll off, and not water the plants. The only way I could fix this, was to poke small holes in the fabric to allow water to drain. Allowing areas where weeds could come through.
OK for the price

laid some down in front garden, however a few green shoots already forced their way through the fabric !!
Use the correct side?

Good value, using it on top of slabs and gravel on top. From other reviews it mentions not water penetrable. It looks like one side resists water and the other the water goes through.
Know how to use it

This item works well providing you understand that it is not meant to be used on top. Ideal to prevent weeds under stones and new soil. Water passes through gradually in this manner. If you need to kill off weeds then use pvc sheets but remember to weigh it down.mix
