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 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.
