Not easily rolled out and blows around if slightly windy. Need to hold down with 2x4s because the pins or hooks tear thru.
Not great for vegetable gardens. better used under mulch.

      Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

      Wanted to use this on my tomatoes to block weeds and hopefully prevent the blight from ground spores. But this product blew away the next day in a rain storm. I did use the staples to hold it down as recommended, but that didn't help. I was very disappointed in this product. I bought it because it had been highly rated on your website. I really want my money back. This did not work at all! The only good thing is that my plants didn't blow away with the paper.

        Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

        I hate weeds in my garden, but I also don't like trying the hay and newspaper solution that others use. I have a large garden, and this weed mat is just perfect. It lasts all season long. It looks neat and clean. And it is completely effective at preventing weeds.

        tears easily, but so far has stayed in place. Pinned and weight down with step stones. I'm a little concerned that it will last the season. I will withhold judgement at this point

          Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

          The recycled kraft paper and garden staples have reduced the labor required for keeping weeds down by 80-90 percent. At the end of the season I just till the remaining paper back into the soil to break-down over the Winter. I just bought four more rolls for 2015 veggie garden.

                    First put the product down about six weeks ago and so far, no weeds. I also did newspaper in another area, and it has some weeds. This is a great product and I have ordered more, but be aware that it is a stiff product and will go down best where you have open space. I will continue to use newspaper where plants are close toghether.
