It was mentioned on gardening australia today/friday.

I have a wholesaler that sells weedmat type stuff. I have also purchased
what they call geotextile cloth. Both are much of a muchness. The root
barrier material he use though was new to me the others I have seen are
black.

No good as it has holes too large and roots can penetrate.

The stuff I used to keep roots out 25 years ago is brown smooth on one side
furry on the other. Still have some left and still in good nick after all
