I use one grade of the stuff for weed control in my vegetable garden,
while another underlies the brickwork on some walkways near my house.

These materials are typically not paper, nor plastic film, but rather
some sort of woven or felted material (Tyvek, for instance, is a felt
made of polyethylene fibres). All of them are commonly sold around
here as 'landscaping fabric'; perhaps `surface=fabric` might be a
suitable tag?
