Weed Suppression Kits: Mypex Fabric & Ground Pegs

Each pack contains the stated length of 1 metre wide weed prevention fabric, plus 2 plastic pegs per metre run.

Remember that dryness & competition from weeds are the two biggest threats to a young hedge.
Weed control fabric is strongly recommended for use with hedging in places where weeding and watering will be less regular.
It is not a replacement for watering in dry weather, but as well as preventing weed growth, it acts as a mulch and so allows more time between each watering.

For most garden hedges where watering and weeding is convenient, and homemade organic mulch and RocketGro Mulch is practical to apply, weed control fabric is not essential. 


  • Preserve soil moisture
  • Keep the weeds down
  • Designed for rugged agricultural use
  • Last for many years
  • Not necessary to weed before planting

Using the fabric:

Cut down the weeds where you intend to plant; in lawns, lay the fabric over the grass along the line you intend to plant. 
No spraying, no lifting of turf is essential, but if you do scalp off the plants and grass, so much the better. Leave them under the mulch fabric.

Top tip: Applying the plastic mulch months in advance of planting day will clear the soil of more tough weeds & grass for you with less effort.

Stand on the Mypex to hold it, and tuck the Mypex edges into the soil with a sharp, straight up, straight down motion, like in our country hedge planting video, or use plastic pegs

On planting day, cut horizontal slits along the centre line of the mulch fabric, slightly wider than your planting spade, at the spacing you intend to plant your hedging, usually every 33cm. 

Once the hedge has established it will cast enough shade to suppress weeds, and its roots will be deep enough to find moisture in a dry summer.

What to expect

Bareroot plants


Bareroot plants have no soil around the roots. They are light, easy to carry and plant.

Perfect for Winter

The ground tends to be wet in winter, ideal for planting bareroot plants.

Value for money

You pay less for the same size bareroot plants, compared to potted.
