Need to buy many rolls of fabric b4 stone goes down. I have never had to buy allot of this stuff at one time so I'd always go to Lowes and get a couple rolls when needed. I forget what it cost but I seem to remember it was rather pricey given what it was. Any recommendations on what product to use, where to buy and a rough idea what this stuff costs? I did a search and some guys mentioned Lesco having it but if their price is about the same as Lowes I'll go there...my Lesco is a pain to drive to...thanks much

wish i new the answer to this question too... i do know that if you are buying in bulk or high quanities you can get a "better" price at lowes (you will get the price at the contractors desk)i bought some landscape wall block from them a couple of months ago, there ad price was a 1.80 a block i told the guy i needed 2000 of them and they got the price down to 1.27 a block. a substantial savings....

Lesco gave me a price of $57 yesterday for 4 x 150 ft...thats not a very good price considering we supposedly get a 'discount' there as 'green people'. And they wonder why they aren't doing the business they think they should ...every time I check a price there on anything but seed and fert, their prices stink...if any Lesco people read these posts I wish you guys would get on the stick...it would save some of us extra shopping trips if you would get competitive with your other product prices.

Given the prices you all are posting, I am sticking with Lowes. No S/H and I can get it when I need it and not have to "stock" it. This stuff carries a manufactuer 25yr guarantee (for what that is worth)... envisioning me ripping this weed barrier out and putting it in a box with weeds growing through the fabic to get my money back..:dizzy:

I buy bigger rolls than most here, 12'X 350' but I pay about $120 per roll.

I'm just wondering if people are using different types of fabrics. I know that paul and some others use a geo-textile for underlayment on hardscape projects and others are looking for weed barrier. Seems like that would affect the price and maybe even the source.

Our price isn't as good as I'd like. We buy 15' x 360 rolls and then cutt off what we need. Generally in 3' or 4' rolls. Our price is $315.00 or $.056 per square foot. We buy from a plumbing supply house that sells lots of catch basins, pvc and black plastic corrogated material.

Prices mentioned:
Paul's... about $.029 per squre foot
Lowe's... about $.067 per square foot
Lesco.... about $.095 square foot

I thought Lesco was supposed to give a good price
Sent a email to a sails rep last month about some fertilizer never even replied, so be it.
