What is WeedGuardPlus?

We are the UK suppliers of WeedGuardPlus but what exactly is it?


Weed Guard Plus is a 100% biodegradable paper mulch that blocks weeds all season long but allows water, air and nutrients through to the soil. It also reduces erosion, moderates soil temperatures, and promotes strong early growth. It can even withstand heavy rainfall.  It biodegrades 100% over the season. Easy to use and visually pleasing. It is a natural organic, environmentally friendly alternative to black plastic and synthetic ground covers so you can weed less and grow happier, healthy plants - avoiding nasty herbicides.

It is made from cellulose fibres offering growers a high-quality, cost-effective replacement for plastic mulches.

The unique formulation is designed for complete weed suppression, optimum plant growth, ease of use for home growers, allotments and market gardeners.
