I disagree. First I do install fabric on new installs when requested. But I inform the client over time sediment will build up on top of the fabric causing weeds to be able to root on top of the fabric. It is better to inform a client about these issues then just walk away. I see landscapers walk away then their old client come to us. They love inform them and still let them make the decision. I see too many landscapers feeling that the decision on peoples properties is their choice. That is far from the truth. I am highly respected due my experience, education in horticulture, and my way of treating customers where they get my knowledge but still respect their wishes.
