This matting is Oppotex Geotex matting which we use for all our planting here at World of Willow. It is a high quality woven matting suitable for weed control and stabilising banks and driveways. It lasts 7-9 years without a mulch on top and is guaranteed up to 30 years** when covered! It is marked out with handy green woven lines to make spacing your cuttings much easier.
You can choose a pre-packed roll or we can cut from a larger roll for you. The pre-packed matting comes in 2 different widths:
- 1m wide and either 10m or 25m long, ideal for hedges or narrow boarders.
- 1.5m wide and 15m long for bigger areas.
We can also cut the fabric for you by the meter, either from a roll 2 meters wide, 3 meters wide, or from a roll 5m wide. The price per square meter is similar so choose the shape that best fits what you want to plant. Use the little arrow below the world Style in the Purchase Options box above to see all the products.
We use this woven weed control fabric for all our own planting, you don't need chemicals to remove weeds, just strim your area as short as you can then put the matting down. It has a weight of 80-100gm/sqm. and is permeable easily letting moisture and air through. It allows you to punch holes to plant your cuttings without fraying and what is really useful is that it is marked out into squares making lining up your rows, and counting your planting, very easy! We have had it down for several years and its still going strong, we are told it has a life expectancy of 7 years without mulch on top and many more if covered.
**1x10m has 10 year guarantee when covered with mulch.
