Fence Weed Barrier


Could this work for a chain link fence?

Thanks.



That is the best way, but my fence is already in and I need to go kinda cheap. I will probably buy a roll (first post) and give that a try in a section of fence for a mow strip.

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


Your selected product is designed to reinforce patches. As such, it is covered by other material. That makes me question just how UV resistent it is.

I doubt it will last long.

If I don’t use a proper weed strip, my second choice is a large propane torch. You hit the weeds once to stew them in their own juices which kills them. After a week or so when they are good and dry, you hit them again and burn them out.

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


strips of rolled roofing works good enough.

Saving money is using something that has a chance of working. shingles and rolled roofing as been used for generations as a cheap convenient path or stepping stones type placement around gardens.

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


The 25 sq ft of patch material weighs about 1/3 of a lb,
Roll roof material is close to 1 lb per sq ft.

Which one do you think will stay in place better when the wind blows ?

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


I always thought it was easier to just spray weed killer along the bottom the fence a couple times a year.

More and more people getting funny about that stuff. if the fence is shared with a neighbour, could be a problem.

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


I use nothing but total vegetation killer.
Use this product and it only needs to be done once a year.

Re: Fence Weed Barrier

Re: Fence Weed Barrier


I gave up fighting weeds against the chain link that separates our neighbors from us. I just turn the weedeater sideways and keep a place cleared for the push mower wheel to run in. Hmmm, I need to mow today.
