Weed membrane is BAD.
It doesnt really control weeds and many weeds attach their roots to it to spread. It destroys soil underneath.......makes soil sterile,,worm free, air free. It is the devil of a job to remove....oh yes! Most everyone eventually removes it. It makes it difficult to move plants, to dig out unwanted or dead plants. It makes bulb planting awkward. It looks awful unless generous gravel is added.
Far, far better to use a living mulch around plants or apply gravel more thickly in the first place.
