About our Landscaping Fabric
Here at Grangewood Fencing Supplies Ltd we are delighted to announce the launch of our very own landscaping fabric! Landscaping fabric can be an essential part for so many garden projects and we’ve decided to release our very own. Durable, tear-proof and heavy duty – our membrane is made from top quality materials to ensure your project will last the tests of time. Take a look below at the benefits of using our landscaping fabric in your garden.
Using our Landscaping Fabric for Weed Control
Landscaping fabric is an excellent form of weed control. The fabric allows moisture to pass through it and helps to increase soil temperatures slightly. This promotes healthy plant and crop growth whilst blocking the light that weeds need to grow. Our landscaping fabric is simple to cut to size and can easily fit around existing plants. This makes it a first choice for plant beds and borders. It’s a small investment that can save you hours plucking out those pesky weeds!
Perfect for Soft and Hard Landscaping
Our fabric is extremely versatile. It can be used in soft landscaping, like in flower beds, or in hard landscaping, such as under decking. It comes in a variety of sizes too, so you can get the size that you need for whatever project you’re working on. We have a range of size options from 10m2 to 100m2 helping you to minimize waste. This way you’re saving the environment and money at the same time.
Landscaping fabric is an environmentally friendly alternative to using chemicals for weed control. Chemical weed control often comes in spray form, which means it’s very easy to accidentally contaminate plants you don’t wish to spray. This can lead to them being damaged, or even dying. Weed killer can also impact local water sources and cause health issues for local wildlife. There’s even studies on how it can negatively affect human health. Using landscaping fabric as an alternative removes this risk completely. It will release no chemicals into the soil making it safe for the environment and an eco-friendly choice.
Heavy Duty and Tear Resistant
Our membrane is heavy duty. It can withstand harsh conditions and wear & tear, so you won’t need to worry about having to replace it any time soon. It’s made to last and is tear resistant. Unless you cut it, it’s going to stay in place. You don’t need to worry about it ripping and can be assured that our landscaping fabric is a top quality woven fabric.
Reusable Weed Control
Landscaping fabric is reusable! If you decide to have a garden shuffle around next Spring, you can easily take up the fabric and use it elsewhere. Simply remove whatever you’ve laid on top of it and you’re done. Other than a bit of dirt it’ll be as good as new!
How do you use our Landscaping Fabric?
Laying down our fabric is an easy task but it’s important to get a few things right. Our top tips are:
PREP – Make sure you’re starting with a flat, even surface as having bumps or sharp rocks underneath the fabric can cause damage to it.
JOIN – When placing two sheets of landscaping fabric down, make sure their edges overlap as this prevents weeds from poking up through the seams. It’s good to secure all the edges into place too, either with pegs or rocks.
COVER – Although it can work fine by itself, it’s often handy to cover it with some kind of rock or gravel. Plus, this makes it look nicer too.
It’s as simple as that! Whether you’re an avid gardener or a total novice, it’s a task that most people will be able to accomplish in a short amount of time. In just an afternoon you can lay down Grangewood Fencing Supplies’ landscaping fabric and have a garden that looks neat & tidy for years to come.
