Landscape fabric between berry rows?
I've got a half acre or mixed berries planted, all in rows of annually mulched raised beds.
As this is a lot of work I am hoping to simplify maintenance a bit. Plan was to mow but the grass is encroaching the berries much faster than I can manage it.
Would the heat generated from black fabric harm berries (blueberries/gooseberries/blackberries/currants etc etc)?
Any other issue you can think of? I figured on covering the ground in between rows, plus a swath all the way around the plot- but leaving rows exposed to allow mulch to be added. Just pegging it down and hoping the wind doesn't rip it up.
I don't like the idea of plastics or fabrics in the garden, but at least this breathes. Thanks.
