Finally, a weed barrier that works!
We researched material all over the planet for a weed barrier that would work. We started with what was available. And frankly, that was not much and not that good. We looked at every product we could find manufactured in the US and abroad. Believe me, we looked. Although the quality varied greatly, we concentrated on woven landscape fabrics and fiber landscape fabrics. We even looked at road fabrics, pool cover fabrics, trampoline fabrics, and all kinds of biodegradable fabrics.
One thing we quickly learned, most of the weed barriers available were not worth a nickel. And none were reusable except for maybe black landscape fabric. The biodegradable fabrics were the best in concept, but they did not work predictably or that well either. The rest were flimsy and lasted barely a season. Weeds grew under them, or on them, or the material disintegrated after one or two seasons because it was not UV protected.
Have you ever tried to pull weeds from underneath some fiber weed barrier fabric? No thanks. Or have you ever had to pick crumbled black plastic out of your garden? What an ordeal.
Go to any local nursery, hardware store or nursery or agricultural store and study what weed barriers are available. You will quickly discover nothing can come close to Garden Mats. Nothing. Even the best commercial landscape material won’t be as good. Why?
The cost of materials to make the highest quality fabric possible are very expensive. And there is enormous pressure on manufacturers to make and mass market a weed barrier that is as inexpensive as possible. Everyone markets a “high quality” weed barrier, but the truth is no one makes (puts the money into) one that works all that well. It’s called mark-up. All of the other products promise more than they deliver. Compare and you will see. We deliver.
Garden Mats start with the highest quality woven polypropylene fabric, not the cheapest. The unique green and black weave attracts the right amount of sunlight (heat), but the material does not bake the soil underneath. It blocks sunlight and it lets just the right amount of air and water through. For more information on the features and benefits of Garden Mats, click here.
Tell your friends, neighbors, relatives or some new gardening acquaintance. Word of mouth is worth its weight in gold. It’s the oldest way to market on the planet.
