ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE WEED MAT

 

SUPERIOR WEED MAT TECHNOLOGY at work

Unlike polypropylene weed mats ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE’s superior weed
mat technology allows air and water to rapidly pass through it and go straight
down to the roots of the plants.

ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE’s specially designed polymeric fibres uniquely resist
weed penetration while still allowing water and air to rapidly pass through them.

REDUCE COST AND WASTE
ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE also offers the cost saving benefit of various widths
available to suit most applications.

BY CHOOSING THE WIDTH CLOSEST TO WHAT IS ACTUALLY REQUIRED
SIGNIFICANT WASTAGE CAN BE AVOIDED.

THE FOLLOWING SIZES ARE AVAILABLE:
67cm, 74cm, 76cm, 105cm, 107cm AND 183cm.

FOR NURSERIES AND LANDSCAPE GARDENERS 500 METRE LONG
JUMBO ROLLS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE.

POLYPROPYLENE WEED MATS

 

 

 
 
polypropylene weed mat

The vast majority of the well known weed mats are made of a cheap plastic
(known as polypropylene) which is itself unable to absorb water or air.
However in order to use this cheap plastic weed mat manufacturers have used
a weaving process where strips of this plastic are interwoven to produce a
surface that can, over time, absorb water albeit at an extremely slow rate
compared to ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE which is 20 times faster.

Essentially the same holes that allow water to go through black plastic weed
mats, given time, also allow weeds to rise through them as per the two
photos above.

The disadvantages of using these black woven polypropylene weed mats
is again highlighted when they are laid over contoured surfaces where the
majority of the water that falls on them will run off before it has time to go
through them and into the soil resulting in significant wastage of water.

     

 

 
  Weeds Breaking Through  

Tests conducted show within a few months, weeds
brake through the best known polypropylene weed
mats while 2 years on the ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE
still holds back weeds completely!

 
         
 

AGI PIPE INSTALLATION

 

IDEAL FOR AGI PIPES

 
 
Agi Pipe installation

ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE’s ability to rapidly absorb water and hold out
weeds and soil makes it ideal for use with AGI pipes.

The slotted AGI pipe is firstly covered with two layers of ENVIRON PREMIUM
BLUE
weed mat and laid inside the trench that has been graded to allow
water to run off in the direction of the storm water drain that will collect and
remove it. Ideally a layer of builders black plastic should be laid under the
AGI pipe to hold the water long enough until the AGI pipe can remove it
instead of sinking deeper into the soil and water logging it.

As can be seen in the diagram below the AGI pipe should then be covered
with 3/4” screened gravel. A double layer of ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE weed
mat is then laid above the screened gravel to stop soil which will sit above
it from going through and clogging up the screened gravel.

The 4” of soil and the instant turf are then laid over the ENVIRON PREMIUM
BLUE
weed mat.

                         
 

The ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE can be installed
in just three easy steps!

 

INSTALLING THE ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE


1. Remove existing weeds, rocks and any sharp objects, then spray the surface with weed killer prior to laying the ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE weed control mat.
   
2. Secure the weed mat using metal staples every metre.
   
3. To allow planting, a section in the shape of a circle is cut out of the ENVIRON PREMIUM BLUE weed mat. The diameter of the circle cut should be large enough to allow for the future growth of the plant.
