About three years ago we planted 6 lavender plants. Three really tokk but never got bigger then a foot. They turn purple every year but dont grow. This year we were going to put a weed barrier around them… is this a good idea? They have a sunny part of the yard but are about 2 ft away from ornamental grass that take over and look beautiful. We really want them to grow this year. Any tips? Will the barrier effect them? Are yard slopes down a bit so it does allow for some drainage like I was told when planting! Please help! Thank you.

What USDA zone are you located in, and can you include photos? What is the soil like? Is it heavy clay? Sometimes this will have to be amended to keep it from getting compacted.

The dirt is rich soil. Very loose with lots of worms. Natural.. no clay. We live on ling island zones 7a & 7b. I will include photos soon.
