    Weed Control Geotextile Membrane

    This nonwoven landscape geotextile black fabric is made from recycled polypropylene and is thermo-bonded, produced without the use of adhesives or chemical binders.

    This permeable weed control membrane allows the free flow of water, air and nutrients (including fertilizer) downwards into the soil from above, but blocks sunlight into the soil and weed growth from below.
    It helps to keep moisture in the soil, encourageing plant growth but remaining an effective weed barrier.

    FLORTEX® 120 does not absorb water and reduces the growth of mould and mildew. It can be used successfully with drip irrigation systems.

    FLORTEX® 120 geotextile fabric is strong and durable has good tear resistance. It is flexible and easy to cut and install.
    For best results cover with 50mm layer of mulch or rounded pebbles immediately after installtion. It is compatible with drip irrigation systems.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    The FLORTEX® 120 weed control layer should be covered within 24 hours as prolonged exposure to UV light will reduce the lifespan and invalidate the product warranty.
