Weed Control Fabric

Noweed Weed control fabric is a UV stabilised heavy duty (110 gsm) woven polypropylene fabric. Manufactured to prevent weed growth and yet allow air to circulate! Soil is not soured and roots are protected from the spread of fungus and bacteria.

Noweed stands out from other fabrics which appear to be the same, is its construction. An ordinary woven polypropylene pools water and prevents air flow, resulting in poor soil and poor growth. Noweed breathes and allows nutrients to filter through.

A heavy duty woven weed fabric is superior to a nonwoven in several ways. Most importantly is UV life, a nonwoven will never last anywhere near the length of time of Noweed. Plus weed prevention, it is a heavy grade woven polypropylene ans the premium is a commercial grade fabric.

Noweed weed control fabric is used by landscapers, commercial growers, home and garden. Suitable for commercial crops, pebble and bark gardens, and weed control without the hazards of chemical sprays which endanger the growth and health of other plants. The fabric can be used both in ground or as an overlay for container growing.

Birdnetting

Knitted birdnetting

  • Permanent Canopy (also for draping over): This knitted birdnetting provides an ideal solution for high value crops. In addition to horticultural applications, the mesh has been used as bird protection for commercial fish farms, bird & predator fish protection for oyster leases, and bird & pest protection for urban building facades. This heavier cloth can also be used as a drapeover cloth.

The crop can be protected and considerable savings made by draping this mesh over the bush, vines, or temporary canopy during the vulnerable period.
