Weed Mats

Black Uvi Polythene Mats  


Black Uvi Polythene Mats are the most economical on an initial purchase cost basis of the Weed Suppressant Materials an provide only the absolute minimum requirements for the tree. These Mats prevent weed growth for the period of at least the two years that they last. As they are not water permeable, and they can attract pests such as voles to the tree, they are not the ideal material for use as a Weed Suppressant. All our Mats are supplied pre-cut with a slit to the centre point for the tree.


Woven Polypropylene Mats


Woven Polypropylene Suppressants are far more effective as a mat to aid tree development. This material not only stops weed development due to it being lightproof but it also allows water to drain through the mat providing the essential moisture the tree needs. These Mats are also much stronger than plain UVI Mats which helps them to resist tearing and blowing free in windy conditions. 


These Mats have a life expectancy of at least 5 years so will satisfy the young trees' demands in this area also. Rainbow offers this range in 50cm x 50cm and 1m x 1m sizes with centre slots for the tree or complete 1m x 100m rolls.

We searched for ..."
