While keeping weeds at bay, these cost-effective mulch squares provides a microclimate for growing, moderating soil temperature. Hemp's ability to absorb water and release it slowly into the soil allows 30-50% less water use compared to bare soil. Pre-cut from a corner to the center, so place them around existing plants, bushes, or trees with ease. Will not damage trunks or stalks with direct contact. Anchor to the ground with Woven Earth's biodegradable anchor stakes for a complete, all natural mulch solution. Each square is about 7% of the weight of its equivalent square footage of bark mulch, and lasts between 1-3 years, depending on the climate.
The greatest innovation in mulching in the 21st century! Woven Earth’s mulch mats are dense enough to keep nuisance weeds and grasses from growing, a concept also known as weed barrier, or weed block. Rather than using petroleum-based plastics, we’ve taken another route; our mats are made from all-natural hemp fiber, grown sustainably. Use anywhere you would find traditional types of mulch—landscaping beds, sloping hillsides, etc. They are also fantastic pot covers. Over the course of 1-3 years, the mulch will slowly degrade into the soil, where it improves soil structure, permeability and organic content. While keeping weeds at bay, the mulch provides a microclimate for growing, moderating soil temperature. Hemp’s ability to absorb water and release it slowly into the soil allows 30-50% less water use compared to bare soil. Because the mats are anchored down rather than spread out like bark mulch, they provide outstanding erosion control for slopes. It shields soil from rain and irrigation water beating and runoff, allowing the water to slowly soak into the soil, maximizing every precious drop. These mats are 18-inch squares, pre-cut from a corner to the center, so placing them around existing plants, bushes, or trees is a snap. Trim to size easily with garden shears, then anchor to the ground using our innovative biodegradable anchor stakes. The mats can be covered over with aesthetic landscaping materials, but are absolutely beautiful left uncovered. Save your back! Woven Earth’s mulch mats are much lighter than traditional bark mulch. As a comparison, we looked at a few popular areas covered with our mulch mats and bark mulch at 3 inches deep:
This process of natural protection, degradation, and providing nutrients to the very soil it was protecting forms a balanced cycle; from the earth; into the earth; return to the earth.
