Landscape Fabric lives Forever

IMG_7300Greg Nelson, fabulous volunteer, removed this huge 27 year old landscape fabric from one of the Grass Collection beds this morning. Yeah Greg!! Just when you are sure its gone, it appears under roots, soil and seems to multiple. We installed it originally thinking it would reduce weeds. It did not and I regret that day we installed it. The tough grasses have grown over it and sometimes through it, and we can almost hear the plants cheer when it comes out. No decomposition here, just a pointless barrier for air and moisture.
