Noweed can either be laid over an area with plants and trees already in place or before. Using scissors or a knife, cut an “+” where each plant is to protrude. Carefully poke the plant through the opening.

Position the fabric at the base of each plant. (To eradicate such vigorous weeds as Oxalis and Couch, treat the soil by steam or other methods prior to planting). The fabric can be secured in place using ground staples, or pegs (available from Permathene).

Noweed can be left exposed to the elements or, for an even longer life, covered with bark, pebbles, rock, etc.  If covered the fabric should last indefinitely.
