Can you put weed mats under pavers?

I have a section of the house paved. I lifted the pavers to clear some weeds, I noticed a plastic weed mat below it. The plastic weed mat looks like plastic bag materials but with small holes. Should I put a new weed mat (black - material looks like a gunnie sack) on top of the existing mat before laying back the pavers? Or just lay back the pavers?

Hi Penny,

If the weed mat is in good condition just leave it where it is. One brand of weed mat lasts for 5 years and another brand lasts for 10 years so depending on when the pavers were laid it may not need replacing yet.
