Need to get control of weeds... ground cover?

I've been in my house for 3 years and each year have struggled to keep my terrace garden from being overrun. I have 5 terraces in my backyard that are about 5' x 80'. They have a good mix of established plants, but each year by June the terraces start to get overrun with weeds (some as big and strong as full size plants) if we can't commit a full day each week to clear everything out. Does anyone have suggestions for taking back control of my terrace garden? Does landscape fabric work? Or is there a better option?

Landscape fabric works very well. Hold it in place with landscape staples. Only cut in places where you need to get around established plants. Top with a layer of organic mulch (pine bark, etc.).
