Features & Benefits of GardenMats

  1. Block sunlight to stop weeds

    Garden Mats block out sunlight so weeds just can’t grow. You win because you spend much less time weeding—and much more time enjoying life. Your plants win because they don’t have to compete with nutrient-robbing weeds.

  2. Let Air & Water Through

    Plastic weed barriers can slow weed growth—at least for a season, until they wear out. But they also stop air and water from reaching the roots of your plants. Garden Mats block weeds, but let air and water through to nourish your plants and promote lush, productive growth.

  3. Retain Moisture & Reduce Erosion

    Too little rain can mean huge watering chores—and water bills! Too much rain can mean erosion that carries soil and nutrients away. Garden Mats protect against both, holding in moisture during dry spells and protecting your soil from being carried away by heavy downpours.

  4. Moderate Soil Temperature

    From the late frosts of early spring to the broiling heat of midsummer and the cold snaps of fall, Garden Mats insulate the soil from spikes and drops in temperature that can slow growth and reduce yields.

  5. Increase Yields 10% to 20%

    Garden Mats block out competing weeds and hold in moisture and nutrients to boost your yields by 10% to 20%, season after season. You’ll enjoy more tasty veggies and berries than ever before.

  6. Make Planting a Breeze

    With Garden Mats, the spacing between rows and individual plants is already done. There’s no more measuring and guesswork—our pre-cut industrial grade landscape fabric does the work for you. Think straight, weed-free rows of lush, productive herbs, veggies, and berries, and you’ve got the picture.

  7. Last Up to 10 Full Years

    Forget flimsy plastic and woven mats that last one season. Garden Mats are made from industrial grade weed barrier fabric that lasts up to ten full years. You can walk on it. Deer can walk on it (although we don’t recommend that!). And you can even keep Garden Mats in place year-round.
