DuPont WeedFree Landscape Fabric is Going in the Sandbox

We got tipped to a new product from DuPont that promises to eliminate the problem of weeds in our garden.
Their WeedFree Premium landscape fabric supposedly provides a strong defense against weeds and helps promote healthy plants and shrubs. It’s made of spun-bonded polypropylene which creates a breathable barrier that resists punctures, unraveling or tearing while allowing air, moisture and nutrients to permeate.
Another valuable feature is that it eliminates the need to use any toxic weed killers which make it perfect for organic gardens or areas where children will be playing. We plan on laying it down while we build a sandbox this week and we’ll keep you posted on how it performs.

Because if it’s durability it should last for many seasons. To install it you simply lay it out and cover with 2 to 3 inches of mulch, it is also warranted to last 15 years. It comes in these sizes: 3′ x 50′, 3′ x 100′, 3′ x 300′ and 6′ x 150′.
