Weed Barrier Pro is a super-tough, 3-1/2 oz. polypropylene fabric weed mat, strong and specially designed for use beneath bark mulch, crushed stone, gravel, or paving stones. Similarity in color to bark mulch results in less obvious bare spots too. Suppresses weed growth while allowing air, water, and nutrients to pass through. Can also be used behind retaining walls.
Eight independent university tests rated this patented landscape fabric #1 for stopping weeds. The porous, dual-layer fabric lets air, water and nutrients pass through, yet stifles nearly all weed growth.
A natural alternative to plastic or weed-killing herbicides, this biodegradable mulch smothers weeds and reduces water loss due to evaporation from the soil surface. The dark color absorbs heat from the sun, warming the soil so you can plant earlier. Made from natural cellulose fibers from wood pulp, it breaks down after one growing season, enriching the soil with organic matter. OMRI-listed for certified organic growing.
If you're not diligent about replenishing bark mulch, it can start to look messy and start letting weeds through after just one season. These thick mulch mats are made of tightly woven coconut fibers and durable natural latex, so they stop weeds for several seasons. They reduce string-trimming chores too, because you can mow right over them.
This recycled rubber tree ring will never scatter, even when you run a mower over it. Unlike bark mulch, it doesn’t acidify the soil, and won’t need to be replaced each year. The ring suppresses weeds while letting air and water reach tree roots. It also keeps mowers and trimmers away from trunks, preventing damage to bark. Slit allows easy placement around trunk. Center hole can be cut with scissors to enlarge.
