Choosing The Right Ground Cover Fabric For Your Projects
Ground covers are extremely flexible in application and can be used in a wide variety of landscape situations. The popular and common ground covers are used for insect protection, frost prevention, weed control, temperature control, sunlight and moisture controls. Ground covers can also be used for aesthetic appearances, so whatever you need ground covering for, your choices will vary.
Note: the ground covers offered blow are not ideal for all of the applications listed below.
If you plan to extend your growing season into the fall months in order to start growth earlier in the spring, your crops must be protected from possible frost.
These blankets are placed directly over plants and shrubs that create a layer for trapping in heat from the ground while keeping frost out. In order to accomplish this, all sides of the frost blanket must be sealed off. See our frost blanket section for a full selection of frost blankets and additional information.
Row covers increase the temperature of the area underneath it, keeping the plants underneath safe from freezing. Row covers can either be directly placed over crops or placed over hoops, creating a mini hoop housing.
Weed & Insect Protection:
Weeds and insects are one of the biggest plights against crops and plants. It's very important what you do to prevent your plants and crops from coming in contact with either one of these issues. Insects carry diseases that can kill your crops before ever making it to the market. Weeds deprive your plants from much needed nutrients which will prevent them from reaching maturity. There are a number of ground covers that are specifically manufactured for keeping these harmful elements out.
These ground covers suppress weed growth while still bringing in water, nutrients and air for the plants. The covers are placed over plants, protecting them through their entire growth, saving on labor and time costs.
