I just got a bunch of perennials (coreopsis, shasta daisy, purple coneflower, St. John's wort) and I'm going to plant them around a newly completed swimming pool. The main goal of all of the plants is beauty followed closely by low maintenance. I was thinking about putting down landscaping fabric and then cutting holes in the fabric to plant the plants. The idea, of couuse, is to limit or eliminate the weeds. I was worried though that these plants might not spread because of the landscaping fabric.
What should I do?
