You can protect the soil
in your garden or greenhouse by using weed control fabric. Weed control fabrics - also known as ground cover, weed block, weed control membrane, landscape fabric, weed cloth, weed barrier fabric or weed suppressant fabric - provide soil protection
and have been developed to suppress the growth of weeds without using chemicals, whilst still allowing air, water and nutrients through to your plants. Weed control fabrics effectively suppress weed growth as they block out the sun so reducing photosynthesis and ultimately stopping weed growth.
The added benefit of using a weed control fabric is that it helps to keep the ground moist helping to reduce the need for watering your plants whilst encouraging root growth and protects from extreme temperatures.
Easy to use, weed control fabrics can be cut using scissors and held in place using Ground Pegs or Fabric Staples. Our Weed Mulch is designed to be used below bark mulch, play bark, wood chips or gravel. Where there is likely to be heavy traffic - such as along a pathway - we recommend using the more heavy duty Ground Cover below mulch or gravel. This heavy duty material can also be used in greenhouses and polytunnels without having to be covered with mulch or gravel.
