Last fall when we cleaned up the veggie garden, we tilled all 5 beds well and I covered them all in weed blocking fabric.

Oh yeah --- I know exactly what you mean!

MIL loved her flowers and When she became wheel-chair and house bound (emphysema and asthma combination NOT good), her husband had a landscaper make a little garden for her outside her living room window and that person used weed-blocking fabric. When we came back to close up the house and empty the contents after her husband died, we tried weeding that bed, which was rampant with week==ds. The only thing that survived the weed-block fabric was weeds. All her purpose-planted columbines and other such flowers had succumbed!
