Landscape Fabric Pegs


What can I use to hold down landscape fabric ? The pegs made specifically for this are $5 for 20 --- too expensive.

Anyone have any ideas ? Don't want to use nails.

Thanks

Best thing you can do is not use any fabric.
Weeds will still just grow through it an be harder to remove when they do.
One of the reasons to make sure you use at least 4"'s of mulch and add some Preen to help stop new weeds from growing.

Do you need the pegs in permanently or just to hold it in place while you set the mulch? If it's temporary, I used rocks or pieces of brick until most of the mulch was down. If it's permanent, $5 for a bag of 20 pegs really isn't too bad.

I installed a drainage ditch and it's 90% full of stones... next I want to put landscape fabric on top and then put top soil on top of that...

I wanted to use something to hold the fabric in place to stop the dirt from going into the stone

thank you

Get a spool of thick wire. Cut it into 8 inch lengths and bend them into a tight U shape...like a staple.

That just makes no since to me.
How is grass going to take root and stay put on a slope with just a few inches of top soil?
First bad storm and the top soil and grass seed is all going to run down to the middle of the ditch.
Really want to add to the amount of weed whacking and weed pulling on that slope?
