    Plastic sheeting is not a good alternative as it keeps water from getting to the roots as well as makes the mulch slide. I cannot stand the fabrics either as after 2 or 3 seasons the mulch has decomposed enough to allow seed to germinate above and into the fabric. Get down and pull'm by hand...not a big deal if you stay on top of it.
