there is this landscaper in my area that does great work. Its called Arrowwood landscaping. anyway, I love watching his work. He did a job that finished today that took like 3 days to do. It was a install of shrubs, few small trees, topsoil,and mulch that i saw. i did notice they put down fabric that i now have mixed feelings for. my main reason for this thread is to see if you agree with me. well the install is on a hill that is like 30 x 150 or more. i was wondering with all the rain and the sow we get up here how big of a chance that it will wash away? Mike does such nice work i would hate to see it ruined. the incline is just about 50° angle. I guesse only time will tell. What do you guys think without seeing it?
