Is Weed Control Fabric Harmful?

2 min read

weed control fabric

Our Weed Control Fabric is chemically inert so it will not harm children or pets. So, it can even be used in a pond to reduce soil erosion.

Our fabric is an ideal alternative to chemical based weed controls and is the first of its kind to be endorsed by Kew Gardens. Its long life span of at least 25 years means it’s a long term  environmentally friendly solution.

It can be made from a variety of materials, each with their own unique properties and benefits.


This is the most common material used. Polypropylene is a thermoplastic polymer that is highly resistant to chemical and environmental damage. It is also lightweight, durable, and easy to work with. Polypropylene fabric is usually UV-resistant and can last up to 10 years.


Polyester weed control fabric is made from synthetic fibres that are woven together. It is highly resistant to tearing and punctures, making it a good choice for areas with heavy foot traffic. Polyester fabric is also UV-resistant and can last up to 15 years.

Biodegradable materials:

Some fabrics are made from biodegradable materials like jute, hemp, and coconut fibres. These materials break down over time, providing nutrients to the soil and promoting healthy plant growth. Biodegradable fabric is a good choice for organic gardens and eco-conscious gardeners.

Recycled materials:

Some manufacturers make weed control fabric from recycled materials like plastic bottles or old carpet fibres. These fabrics are eco-friendly and can help reduce waste. Recycled weed control fabric can be just as effective as other materials and is often more affordable.

Polypropylene and polyester are the most common materials used, but biodegradable and recycled materials are also available. No matter which you choose, weed control fabric is a great way to reduce weed growth and maintain a healthy garden or landscape.
