Greenfix Mulchmats and Mulchspats provide mulching, moisture control, non-chemical weed control, soil erosion protection and soil temperature balance. Made from a coir upper layer with two UV degradable foils underneath, the mats offer nursery like conditions to newly planted trees and shrubs. The natural coir upper layer blends with the landscape while the offset slits in the bottom layers allow water through, but prevent light penetration. Both Mulchmats and Mulchspats offer weed control and mulching typically for at least three years.
The Royal Forestry Society Quarterly Journal of Forestry said that Greenfix Mulchmat is “very easy to fix, moulds to the ground contours. Biodegradable… mat has low material costs and management time per tree.” To download the complete report, click here.
