How to choose the high-quality weed mat (ground cover)?

Weed Mat is a floor covering material woven from anti-ultraviolet plastic flat wire, which is both friction-resistant and anti-aging. It is mainly used for ground weed control, drainage, and ground marking purposes. The anti-grass cloth can inhibit the growth of weeds in the orchard, maintain soil moisture, and reduce the labor cost of management. So how to choose the weed control mat? When choosing the weed mat, the following three aspects should be considered:

1. Width.
The width of the material is related to the laying method and quantity. In order to reduce the loss of labor costs and materials caused by cutting, ground cover with standard width should be used. At present, the common width is 1 m, 1.2 m, 1.5 m, 2 m, 3 m, 4 m, and 6 m, and the length can be chosen according to the actual situation.
2. Color.
Usually, black and white color are the two most popular colors for the weed control mat. Black can be used both indoors and outdoors, while white is mainly used in greenhouses. Its main function is to increase the light level in the greenhouse to promote the photosynthesis of plants. The reflection of light can also reduce the heat accumulation on the ground of the greenhouse and reduce the ground temperature. At the same time, through reflection, it can prevent the survival of insects that do not like the light behind the leaves of fruit trees in the greenhouse and reduce crop diseases. Therefore, the white weed mat is often used in greenhouse cultivation that requires relatively high light.
3. Lifespan.
Since the main function of the ground cloth is to protect the ground and suppress weeds, its service life should have certain requirements. Otherwise, the damage to the material will directly affect the functions of drainage and weed suppression. The service life of the general weed-proof cloth can reach 3 years or more than 5 years.

The weed control fabric has the function of isolation, it can effectively prevent the growth of weeds on the soil surface, and has a high puncture resistance coefficient. Use the grass-proof cloth to enhance the anti-deformation ability of the ground such as in greenhouses, orchards, and vegetable fields, and enhance the stability of the soil structure to improve the quality of the soil and facilitate the work of farmers.

Use the good air permeability and water permeability of the grass-proof cloth to let the water flow through, so as to effectively maintain the soil moisture in the fields and orchards. Isolate the upper and lower layers of sand and soil, effectively isolate other debris from mixing into the planting soil, and maintain the organicity of the planting soil. The mesh woven by the grass-proof cloth can allow irrigation water or rainwater to pass through.
