Individual pre-cut weed mats will suppress competition to young trees and help to retain moisture at the base of the plant.
We offer two options; a woven polypropylene weed mat and a polythene weed mat.
Woven polypropylene weed mats
Manufactured from woven polypropylene, the weed mats come with a slit from the centre to one edge, meaning that installation consists of simply wrapping the mat around the plant and securing with six pegs; one for each corner, and two for the overlap.
Weed mats are essential to suppress weeds when you are unable to spray the base of the plants. Generally, the polypropylene weed mats have a lifespan of around five years, which is more than enough time for a tree to become established.
Polythene weed mats
Polythene weed mats are an extremely cost effective method of weed control, whilst helping to reduce water loss. With a lifespan of around two years, the polythene weed mats provide the absolute minimum requirements for trees.
Our polythene weed mats are pre-cut with a slit to the centre for easy installation and are offered in two sizes; 60cm x 60cm and 1m x 1m.
