Landscaping Fabric Recommendations

What landscaping fabric do you all use? I've been looking at Pro 5 as it seems to be most highly recommended on LawnSite, but so far all I've found is on Amazon and is ~$100 for SHIPPING. That's a little more than the price of the roll itself... I wasn't prepared to pay that for shipping.

Any other recommendations on professional grade landscaping fabric? I will be using it when I put in river rock for a customer, about 4x30. As I understand it, everything sold at stores like Home Depot are junk and should not be used for a professional, long lasting job.

I figured $25 in materials for the fabric and staples (calculated from the price of a roll of 3x250 Pro 5)... Stupidly did not factor in shipping as I did not have an exact number (or expected it to match the price of the roll).

Dewitt Pro 5 is the only option really.
I usually pay about $125 or so for a 4x250 roll. No shipping I go pick up at a large nursery near here.
My fallback is a 4.0 oz woven, from Reinders. Almost as good at the 5 oz Pro5. About $90 for the same size roll of that stuff.

Ask might be cheaper then your $100 If its free shipping in the USA you know They guy already added the shipping price is his asking price
I buy mine wholesale and that roll I buy for about $30 less
Only shipping I get charge is a delivery fee of 15 dollars so I try buy 2-3k at a time
