When installing a weed fabric under gravel or other stone product, keep these pointers in mind:
- You will likely need to remove 3"-4" of soil, then install the fabric, then install your stone. …
- Use a high quality material. …
- Anchor the edges to the ground with landscape staples.
To lay gravel, mark your area off with spray paint or rope. Then, use a spade to remove 4–6 inches (10–15 cm) of soil. Pour 2–3 inches (5.1–7.6 cm) of crushed stone into the pit and put landscaping fabric on top. Cover the fabric with your gravel and spread it out with a rake to finish laying your gravel.
