Here is what each type of material is made for.

Let Air In – Propagation of weeds by wind can be a messy process thus limiting its growth. If you desire the best weed barrier, lay a high quality weed barrier over your lawn. A weed barrier acts as an air trap thus conserving soil moisture. It traps air between itself and the weed thus preventing roots from penetrating the surface. Air is allowed to penetrate through the weed barrier thus killing any existing weed roots before new ones grow.
Use a Weed Control Blend – There are many weed control blends on the market today. The best blend should act as a preventative as well as a regenerator. A preventative weed barrier consists of a weed repellent that prevents weed seed germination; a weed retainer that retain soil moisture; and an aerator that help to increase and circulate air. All three aspects work together to keep weeds from spreading into your turf creating unattractive patches.
