The Search that Started it All

Larry DeWitt started his own landscaping business in Sikeston, Missouri, soon after earning degrees in horticulture and landscape design. In 1977, he was looking for a material to stop weeds and increase plant growth - without chemicals. But back then, black plastic was a landscaper’s only option. From hands on experience, he knew that while plastic stops weeds, it also blocks out moisture and air. The result: disease, fungus and rot.

DeWitt Invents a New Kind of Landscape Fabric

Unsatisfied, Larry decided to create something better. He experimented with textiles and materials until finally hitting pay dirt. He discovered that woven polypropylene did everything he wanted. And his new “landscape fabric,” later dubbed DeWitt’s Weed Barrier™, changed the professional landscaping industry.
