Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

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.

              Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

              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.

                Comments about Biodegradable Weed Mat:

                Used this last year for my melon patch and found it very helpful in keeping out weeds and keeping the melons off the soil (but plan to add the cradles this year). I plan to use it elsewhere this year. Caution: anchor it well since there are no plants to hold it early in the season. I like the fact it pretty much disintegrated at the end of the season.

                  The product is easy to use with the stakes. The best part is that it decomposes. I used the black plastic mesh in the past and it is a pain to remove and dispose of.
