Arapaho Blackberry

Asked June 7, 2020, 12:23 AM EDT

Hello, I took up some grass where I am placing blackberries 3 of them a few feet apart. Will it hurt to put down landscape fabric and mulch or should I just do mulch?

Thank you for the question. There is really no correct answer here. Some people swear by landscape fabric while others shun it. There are some good arguments for not using it. Check out the following links:
