We have options for you
Weeds compete with your crops for moisture, nutrients, light and space. Find out why growers are turning to biodegradable WeedGuard mulches, including new EcoMulch Earthtone (OMRI Listed) and GeoMulch as the natural alternatives to black plastic.
Eliminating weeds can be costly and labor-intensive. What’s more, neither black plastic nor chemical sprays offer environmentally sound solutions to the problem.
Now there’s an effective, affordable, environmentally-friendly alternative: WeedGuard Natural Organic Mulches.
No matter what you grow, or what size area you farm, there’s a WeedGuard Mulch product for you.
Saves Time and Money. WeedGuard mulch saves time and money several ways. First, you completely eliminate the removal and disposal costs associated with black plastic. Just till the weed block under at the end of the season and you’re done. 100% Biodegradable
WeedGuard mulch adds valuable organic matter back into the soil as it decomposes.
Likewise, you completely eliminate the need for and costs of chemical herbicides or hand weeding.
Finally, unlike black plastic, which requires drip irrigation, porous WeedGuard mulches lets you take advantage of natural rainwater, for even greater savings. Overhead watering is also an option. WeedGuardPlus is specifically formulated to maintain its integrity even when wet, slowly degrading over the course of the growing season.
Healthier Plants. Crops planted with WeedGuardPlus get off to a healthy start without competition from weeds. Early in the season, the material warms the soil, helping plants establish faster.
As the season progresses, porous WeedGuard mulch lets air circulate, promoting healthy roots, instead of “cooking” them like black plastic.
