    Just a quick list of the by-products of burning landscape fabric made out of petroleum based plastic such as PET: Water, methane, acetaldehyde, ethylene, formaldehyde, methanol, acetone, benzene, terephthalic acid, styrene (ethenylbenzene), ethanol, toluene (methylbenzene), xylene (dimethylbenzene), ethylbenzene, naphthalene, biphenyl and phenol. These compounds being organic chemicals will bind to the soil. You can accomplish the same work with an exacto knife without melting the plastic.

    are you using anything to anchor the fabric down to the ground? I'm sure it would be fine when all the plants get a bit bigger, but I'd be worried about a gust of wind shifting or blowing up the fabric and damaging the plants, especially the new plugs.

    How many different hole patterns do you use? Different for every crop?

    How can you use this in combination with the Jang seeder?

    Im thinking about making a template for a small raised bed 3×12 and make maybe a 5 on center for carrots.

    Can this method be utilized from seedling? Meaning not as a transplant method but straight from seed?

    Does the plastic 'shrink back' to the edges of the holes, or is molten plastic ending up in the bed?

    Can you use the paper pot planter first, then cover with the prepared landscape fabric? Is the paper pot planter accurate enough so this will work?

    So the burnt plastic doesn’t effect the soil? I’m not sure how healthy that is… it seems too good to be true…

    A template or plan would be really useful. 🙂

    Do they stick together after you burn the holes in them?

    What holds the fabric to the ground so that it stays straight and does not blow in the wind?

    Do you recommend this if you have heavy weed pressure

    Hey I need some advice! I tried this last year and it was a big fail! The fabric kept shifting and slightly covering entire rows of plants and weeds found there way through it eventually and the sun destroyed the integrity!

    Love it! Curtis how are you anchoring the fabric? I farm in a windy area.

    How do you make this line up with the paper pot planter, and seeder?

    I was wondering why you use landscaping fabric instead of the solid plastic, if you are using drip irrigation? (Or do you only use it when you have overhead sprinklers?)

    In the DR, the cheapest weed barrier is 3 or 4 times the price of the traditional plastic row covers.

    How do you guys keep the fabrics from ripping apart when you do more than 1 at a time?? THANKS Curtis and Ray!

    You mentioned that you cut your landscape fabric to make your 30" X 50' lengths. Do you need to burn the edges so that they don't unravel?

    Justin French

    (May 22, 2019 - 4:42 pm)

    Couldn't you fold the fabric up, and just make the holes through multiple layers at once? Or use that hole saw?

    Smart! How do you lay down the lines?

    all that plastic and waste is not profitable its just that your kids will inherit the cost. You are like a mono crop micro farm as bad as any factory farm. never mind the toxins leaching into food

    Looks great until you get a hard rain and all the worms and soil bugs try to escape upwards to avoid the flooding only to drown by the thousands because the barrier prevents them. Genocide's genocide AMIRIGHT?! Organic, chemical, hey atleast your not 'big agra'! LOL shitlibs.
