      I sometimes use carpet with jute backing. It really allows a lot of air and water flow, and does a great job of killing off those inpolite plants that are just too invasive.

      My experience with mulching with cardboard is that it
      needs to be secured in place well and well covered
      with other material to work. I am in a temperate zone
      and I am using the cardboard in a field situation not
      a forest. The cardboard has been effective in killing
      off grasses well. Soaking the cardboard is also
      effective. The down side is that the cardboard will
      dry out and not decompose if not well covered with
      other material. It is also blowing around due to the
      wind.
      Sincerely Tom
