Weed Barrier Mat - Medium
Our handy mat keeps down weeds so you have more time to enjoy your garden! it blocks all annual weeds and all but a few stubborn perennial weeds better than any other permeable mulch. Nonwoven geotextile fabric is dense enough to block the light that many weed seeds need to germinate, but unlike plastic mulches, it lets in moisture and air, so soil can breathe naturally.
Weed Barrier Mat - Heavy
Heavy-Weight Mat ... This is the mat we use in our own Gardens Alive!® plots and trial beds, so we don't have to spend valuable time pulling out weeds. Guaranteed for five years! Our handy mat keeps down weeds so you have more time to enjoy your garden! Blocks all annual weeds and all but a few stubborn perennial weeds better than any other permeable mulch. You can walk on it without tearing it when it's used on garden rows or under pathways. Under bark mulch or pebbles, it lasts indefinitely!
Weed Mat Plus
Landscape Fabric Repels Weeds Above and Below
Most landscape mats suppress weed growth from beneath, but over time, seeds find their way onto the top of the mat and take root. This heavy-duty fabric will stay clear for years because it's coated with a natural copper compound that prevents weeds from rooting.

Tear-Proof Mat Stops Weeds Between Rows

last a season, especially if you walk on them. Now you can solve the problem
the way professional nurseries do! Stops weeds dead, yet lets in air, water

Tom: SPEW Sounds kind of interesting, but kind of weird. How do you join or make contact with SPEW?
Dr. Yucca: They have no public contact, that I know of. They will contact you if they somehow hear that you are interested. Anyone may start a local chapter and recruit their own members (in secret, of course). But there's no official membership, I've been told. If you're connected to their network, anyone may participate whenever they wish in activities of interest. Some local clusters or cells may promote their own projects as they wish, such as weed nursing outings, where they go out and water beautiful weeds, or create weed gardens in vacant lots. Others, I've been told, read and compose poetry about weeds and pledges to prevent excessive weeding.
Tom: Is it true they worship the moon?
Dr. Yucca: I haven't heard anything about that. But, I've heard that on full moons some groups may gather at night for ritualistic chants where they invoke the name of the Universal Mother of Weeds, UMOW.
Tom: Wasn't there an old song with a line like: "UMOW-MOW"? What else can you tell me about this secret society?
Dr. Yucca: I think it was "PAPA U-MAU-MAU", or something like that. I know of many Garden Clubs devoted to gardening, which usually include advice in weeding practices, but I know very little about SPEW - it may be just a mythical concept. Whether SPEW exists or is even necessary, my senses tell me that a bee may see the value of a weed.
