Growtivation LandTex Geotextile Fabric

Growtivation
LandTex is a medium-duty professional quality weed control fabric - a thicker alternative to WeedTex, offering an effective level of weed supression beneath decorative coverings such as rounded gravels or bark / mulch. The non-woven fabric allows water, air and nutrients (such as liquid feed and fertilisers) to permeate in to the soil, whilst restricting light getting to the weeds underneath to prevent their growth.

Key Features

Ideal For Planted Areas
The non-woven material can be easily cut to allow planting through the fabric, and also allows water, air and liquid feed/fertilisers to permeate in to the soil.
Cover With Gravel or Bark
LandTex should be covered with a minimum 50mm layer of bark, mulch or rounded cobbles to prevent light getting through in order to inhibit weed growth. Unlike WeedTex, LandTex's thicker material is suitable for rounded pebbles, but a heavier duty fabric (such as GroundTex) should be used if planning to cover with sharper or angular aggregates which may otherwise pierce LandTex.
Non-woven
Non-woven fabrics are manufactured using short and long fibres, bound and usually heat treated to improve strength. Non-woven geotextiles are generally more permeable than woven fabrics, and are most effective in applications requiring separation, filtration and drainage.
100% Virgin Polypropylene
All of Growtivation's geofabrics are made from 100% virgin polypropylene, making them high quality so you can be confident that the fabric you are using will work and last. Cheaper, inferior fabrics are often manufactured with less polypropylene, using additives instead to bulk the fabric out to meet the weight (gsm) to appear like-for-like. However, these additives break down quickly making the fabric much weaker than a Growtivation geofabric. As with all of our products Landscaping Direct have chosen Growtivation for their quality and the assurance that gives.
Limitations
LandTex is a non-woven fabric designed to suppress weeds, but, like any other weed suppressant fabric, does not eliminate the need for surface weeding as a result of seeds dropped by birds etc growing in the surface covering. LandTex requires a minimum 50mm covering of rounded gravel or bark/mulch to prevent sunlight. It is not suitable for sharper gravel / angular stone coverings, or areas taking pedestrian traffic such as paths, as it may result in the membrane being pierced.
