Ground Cover

Groundcovers are normally used for controlling weeds and are sometimes referred to as a mulch or a floating mulch.

WOVEN GROUNDCOVER

This is a strong black durable woven groundcover made out of polypropylene PP. It often has coloured stripes or grids incorporated into the weaving pattern. It is suitable for pedestrian traffic and is mainly used for lining floors in glasshouses, nurseries and poly tunnels.

It can also be used for as a membrane below gravel paths and patios to prevent weeds but still allowing water to pass through. When exposed to sunlight it will last around 5 years but if put below a patio it will last for over 20 years.

NON-WOVEN GROUNDCOVER

This is also a strong durable groundcover but not as suitable for pedestrian traffic. It is mainly used as a membrane to cover beds to plant fruit or vegetables through. It is easy to cut and does not fray like woven ground cover. It has better permeability for air and water preventing the soil below it from becoming stagnant.

This makes it ideal for strawberry beds in outdoor production as it will let rain water pass through. It can also be used below patios and pathways. When exposed to sunlight it will last 5 years and when put below a patio it should last 10 – 12 years.
