Whether you are a professional landscaper or simply enjoy gardening, you have come to the right place for non-chemical weed control! Our weed control range includes weed control fabric, weed control matting and plastic fixing pegs, meaning you'll be equipped to spend less time weeding and more time planting.
Weed Control Fabric
Weed control membrane such as WEED-DEFENDA 50 and WEED-DEFENDA 70 is a permeable, non-woven fabric used to suppress and control weed growth without the need for harsh chemicals. Available in 50gsm and 70gsm, these permeable fabrics offer excellent drainage and filtration capabilities, meaning nutrients, air and water can still pass through to the soil and retain moisture. Weed control fabric can be used for a wide variety of landscaping applications, including:
- Flower, shrub and vegetable beds
- Under slabs on domestic patios
- Play areas under bark mulch
- Gravel paths and walkways
- Under artificial grass
Weed Control Matting
Weed control mats are small, individual mats that are typically placed around the bottom of trees to provide protection against weeds. We supply two different types of weed control mats – polythene mats and woven polypropylene mats. Both weed control mats have an inbuilt split line to help with installation around the base of a tree.
Polythene mats are the most economical mats that we offer, providing good protection against weeds – but as they are not water permeable, they prevent water and nutrients from passing into the soil. Woven polypropylene mats, on the other hand, offer the same amount of protection against weeds as the polythene mats, but with the added benefit of allowing water and nutrients to pass through as they are permeable. This allows the tree to receive water more efficiently and reduces water stress.
Plastic Ground Fixing Pegs
Plastic fixing pegs are ideal for securing our lightweight weed control fabrics and mats to the ground. Available in lengths 11cm and 14cm, these handy pegs have a rounded mushroom head to provide a wider area in contact with the fabric, and a shaft with barbed sections to ensure a secure interlock with the ground.
