An environmentally friendly way to stop weeds before they start.
Save money on post-emergent herbicides by using WeedGuard Plus. Designed for use in hoop houses and high tunnels, WeedGuard Plus Organic Standard Weight rolls are OMRI listed and 100% biodegradable meaning they will decompose after the growing season. It is made from specially engineered cellulose fiber (a paper-like material) that contains a FDA approved wet-strength component so it can withstand heavy rains.
How Does It Work?
WeedGuardPlus is 100% opaque, so weeds can't get light and therefore can't grow. By allowing germination, but no further growth, the weeds are eliminated before ever taking root. Apply pre-emergent herbicides prior to laying WeedGuard Plus for best early season control.
Suggested Use: For preventive weed control in hoop houses and high tunnels. Simply place over growing areas where weed management is desired.
Put WeedGuardPlus in place before you plant transplants or seedlings, or before you sow seeds. Simply prepare the ground, place WeedGuardPlus over the soil, and cover the edges with dirt. If you wish to use WeedGuard Plus in a smaller area or for container gardening, it can be cut with scissors to conform to the area. You can custom fit it to any layout.
TIP: Spring can be a windy time of year so be sure to cover the edge of the WeedGuardPlus with 2" of soil extending at least 5-6 inches from the edge to hold it in place. Sprinkle it with water to help it conform to the soil bed. Either sow seeds in between the strips or create holes in the paper to sow your seeds or plant your seedlings.
Storage: Store in a dry area.
