Mypex Mulch Fabric - 1 metre wide

Weed control fabric is strongly recommended for use with hedging plants that are planted in places where regular weeding and watering will not be practical. It is not a replacement for watering in dry weather, but as well as preventing weed growth, it acts as a mulch and so will allow more time between each watering. Remember that dryness & competition from weeds are the 2 major killers of young hedges.

Using the fabric could not be easier. You just cut down the weeds where you intend to plant (not needed in grassland) and then lay the fabric down the line you intend to plant. Tuck the edges into the ground with a spade and then cut slits where you intend to plant your hedging. No spraying, no lifting of turf. If you do scalp off the plants and grass, so much the better. Leave them under the mulch fabric to decay, they won't affect your hedge plants.

If you are planting a garden hedge where watering and weeding is convenient, you only need weed control material if you want it to be extra low maintenance. 

So, the principal benefits of using this fabric are that it will:

  • Preserve soil moisture
  • Keep the weeds down
  • Last for many years
  • Save you the trouble of weeding before planting.

Weed control fabric can be held down with plastic pegs or by tucking the edges into the soil with a spade. Stand on the Mypex to hold it, and push the edge of the mypex into the soil with a sharp, straight up, straight down motion, like in our country hedge planting video.
