    Hi everyone, now I got a keyword "landscape fabric", used Moz keyword tool to check its difficulty which is 42, it was much more difficulty than normal phrases which I usually met(normall their difficulty are always 20-30)

    Let's take a look at the following screenshots from Google organic searches:

    Top 1,2 are inner pages of homedepot,3 is of lowes, 4 is of amazon, 5 is of walmart.

    6,7,8 are all inner pages of blog, 9 iis a vieo from Youtube.

    Based on the above resutles, can you say this keyword "landscape fabric" is of so much difficluty?

    Depends what your budget is my friend, and whether the cost of ranking is going to outweigh the cost of gaining from whatever product you are selling. This keyword like the above poster said is hard.

    OP actually no tool is accurate when its about keyword difficulty, you need to try to rank the keyword to know exactly how difficult it is.
