We all know how frustrating it is when we have prepared our garden beds, laid out our ground cover then the wind starts blowing! Even greater frustrations begin when planting on banked or sloped areas and our ground cover slides down the bank.
Coconut Fibre Matting
Cirtex Coconut fibre matting reduces soil erosion on sloped sections and helps to stabilise your planting area.
So, what can you do to fix this?
What are the benefits of Cirtex Coconut Fibre Matting?
How do I install Cirtex Coconut Fibre Matting?
Cirtex coconut fibre matting is easy to install, just like installing weedmat. The ideal way to do this is to run the BioCoir matting down the slope and not across the slope. This will ensure that when heavy rain falls, the movement of soil under the coconut matting is limited and the matting will keep from sliding down the bank. Be sure to pin the BioCoir at approx. every square meter using a good landscape pin or staples to secure it. The Cirtex Ground Staples (made from NZ spring steel) will work best when installing the matting in hard ground, or Cirtex SmartPegs or SquarePegs when installing on softer, flatter ground.
If you need to cut your coconut fibre matting, a sharp knife or heavy-duty kitchen scissors are the best tool for the job.
Coconut fibre matting can also be hydroseeded if required.
If you are a keen green finger and have created garden beds, you will be familiar with one problem – lawn overgrowth. Garden edging establishes clean, crisp lines separating planted beds from your lawn.
When winter arrives and delivers its unrelenting line-up of rain, cooler tempera-tures and soggy ground underfoot, it makes you aware the simple tasks of nav-igating to the clothesline or merely getting a cauli from the garden can become quite an expedition.
