Weed Gunnel allows for efficient use of natural rain water, by allowing seepage of rain through the matting.
Weed Gunnel works by blocking out 96% of the UV light . If seed does germinate photo synthesis cannot take place, stopping weed growth.
• Light Weight
Weed Gunnel is lightweight and easy to cut (will not frey).
Weed Gunnel reduces evaporation of moisture from the soil, allowing valuable water to be retained. The fabric itself does not hold moisture so you do not have the problem of fungal growth or collar rot.
Weed Gunnel allows any slow release and liquid fertiliser to pass through to your soil. All nutrients from the breakdown of any mulch placed around the plants will still penetrate and pass through to the soil.
Weed Gunnel has had a hydrophilic treatment added, which breaks down the surface tension of the matting, allowing greater air and moisture penetration through the matting to the soil below.
