No. The weed barrier is optional. Use it if weeds have strong roots at the time of installation.
I was told with different answers, I guess it all comes down to how much.
I am careless about that.
I used it on mine and I have the Riviera-65
I think it is a bit expensive when I asked my installer so I didn't use it, I haven't had any weeds growing out of turf yet, I guess I will use roundup if weeds become problem.
If you worry about the weeds growing through the drain holes on the turf, it might be a good idea to use the barrier.
