From the craft store to the backyard
When I heard you could use Kunin Eco-Fi felt as under-layment for a rock garden, I had to try it. With the drought here in California we've been converting sections of our yard to rock and drought tolerant plants. The result is that I have been fighting with weeds and cruddy under-layments for years. We've replaced the original thin fabric underlayment we installed (that actually GREW weeds!) with black plastic, which has now created drainage and stinky standing water problems. We've been replacing those sections of landscaping underlayment with Kunin Eco-Fi felt with excellent results!
Here's why Kunin Eco-Fi felt is better for under-layments than the thin fabrics or black plastic the home improvement store tries to sell you:
- Felt is a woven fabric that allows liquids to drain through but keep rocks and dirt in place
- Since Kunin Eco-Fi Felt is made from plastic bottles, it is mold and mildew resistant
- Kunin Eco-Fi Felt is much more affordable to buy than landscaping fabric or black plastic, at about $3.50 a yard from Walmart
- Kunin Eco-Fi Felt is thicker than both landscaping fabric and black plastic, which I think makes it more durable for landscaping use
You can use the same staples to hold the felt in the ground that you'd use for landscaping fabric. The only other tool you need is a pair of scissors to cut the felt. Here's how we made a gravel patio for under $200 with Kunin Group Eco-Fi Premium Plus felt:
