I called about the Propex fabric from work today. Mary Jane Butters recommended this as a weed barrier for a garden in her book.

The highway construction firm I called does have remnants, and they were willing to sell me one. I took off a little early so I could drive up to Wadsworth, Oh, to pick it up. It is a wonderful thick fabric on 12-foot wide rolls. I finished tilling the garden tonight and then starting rolling out the fabric. That is when I realized my garden is not perfectly rectangular. Hmmm. It got dark before I finished, I will try and take a picture tomorrow.

Tonight it only took me about 10 pulls to start the rototiller... Then I realized that I hadn't set the control to "start"....duh!
