Weed Barrier

Several tests have been conducted using this product, all of which have similar results to the following.

This product was first used in Yuma County, Colorado in April 1984 on a windbreak site.  In 1993 it was still in good shape.  Though only guaranteed against UV damage for 5 years, you may expect to get a much longer life from it.

Moisture levels under the weed barrier didn't drop below 85% during a test conducted in 1991.  By contrast, moisture levels under fallow dropped to about 3%.

By preventing weed growth and preserving moisture, this weed barrier is one of your seedlings best friend.
