What I have found about the Landscape Fabric "weed" barriers is that they are a real pain after a while. What I use is a few layers of newspaper covered with a good (usually shredded leaves) mulch to hide the paper and hold it in place. Newspaper can also be laid over the grass and since you would now be denying the grass access to light (which all plants need to grow) that grass will die and the soil bacteria will digest that now dead grass and put the nutrients the grass had (removed from your soil) back into your soil to feed other plants.
