I stopped by Home Depot tonight and bought a "commercial pack" of landscape cloth staples to hold down the fabric. It is quite thick as you can see from the photo below. I am sure I will find some previously unforeseen problems with using this as I experiment with this fabric this year. For example, how am I going to plant radishes? Maybe I will cut small rectangles in the fabric for closely spaced crops. Corn might be another problem. I could cut it in strips, then plant the corn seeds between the strips. Or just leave the section of the garden with the corn uncovered. I see it working best for tomato plants and peppers. Just cut an "x" and pop the plant in the ground. Scissors do cut the fabric but I think I will also try a sharp utility knife.
