Make weeds a thing of the past with these weedmats
Weeds are noxious and hard to maintain, always competing for real-estate with your veggie patch or growing through your pebbled or bark garden. They’re never gone for very long before they spring back into life wreaking havoc amongst your gardens once again. Sure, there are things like weed killers and such, but they contain harmful, poisonous chemicals in them which you wouldn’t want around your food, pets or children.
Another option to combat weeds is using a covering, such as a weedmat. Weedmats are good because once they’ve been laid, there is very minimal maintenance required to maintain them, no need to spray harmful chemicals around your property and they look good!
Weedmats look simple, but upon closer inspection, you can see the complexity that hides within. Here is an image of a premium-grade weedmat that has a high water-retention rating.
As you can see from the 30x Zoom, the weedmat is made from millions of tiny fibre strands that hold the water for longer as it passes through.
Weedmats come in a variety of different grades which boast different benefits, but it really depends what you’re lying on the weedmat as to which one you should choose. Some offer high water flow so that water can pass through much faster, others retain moisture for longer and some have tear-resistance to allow jagged rocked to be placed on top.
Whatever your application may be, there will be always be a weedmat to accommodate.

With the size of our gardens shrinking, the idea of square metre gardening is gaining momentum once again. Which urges the question: what is it?
