Weed control and Weedtex
Weedtex weed control fabric offers an effective weed suppression for many different situations. Weedtex allows nutrients including liquid feed and fertilisers, water and air into the soil to maintain the soils fertility. Above all Weedtex helps to promote plant growth, whilst preventing weeds from getting the daylight they need to grow.
Weedtex is an ideal product for use as a garden weed control fabric beneath garden decking and decorative borders. This weed fabric is easy to cut and can be fixed down with our landscape fixing pegs and should be covered with a layer of bark or other mulch. Weedtex is stocked in convenient 1.0 metre x 15 metre rolls.
However, it is recommended that a heavier duty fabric, e.g. Groundtex woven geotextile fabric is used beneath aggregates and stone. Groundtex is also more suitable for areas subject to pedestrian traffic,
Please note that WEEDTEX is a weed control fabric designed to suppress weeds. However it does not eliminate the need for some surface weeding as a result of seeds dropped by birds etc growing in the surface covering.
Similarly WEEDTEX will suppress most weeds but particular attention should be paid to very invasive weeds and grasses. This includes Mare’s Tail, Bindweed, Crocosmia, Ground Elder, Couch Grass, nettles, brambles and some bulbs. A weedkiller should be applied first and then we would recommend laying a double layer of WEEDTEX. Alternatively you could add a double layer of the surface covering (e.g. min 100mm of bark) for severe areas.
Finally the Drivetex Geotextile fabric would be required in those areas where vehicle access is needed.
