Woven agrotextile works better than nonwoven agrotextile in places where it is not possible or not advisable for it to be covered with bark, wood chips, gravel, pebbles, straw or other material, or decorative creeping plants. The reason is material longevity. When exposed to direct sunlight, nonwoven agrotextile will fulfil its functions for 3 to 4 years. In contrast, woven agrotextile will serve 8 years. Woven agrotextiles are very useful in horticulture, on slopes, and in places where you need a higher resistance to tearing and piercing.
