RootBarrier® BioCovers® is the first 100% biodegradable and compostable weed control fabric made of 95% Bio fiber (PLA) + 5% hemp fiber from the EU. Weeds don’t stand a chance and the fabric facilitates the growth of the newly installed plants and trees.
By using BioCovers®, the use of synthetic mats or herbicides can be avoided. BioCovers® reduces maintenance costs to the absolute minimum. The raw material PLA is UV stable. Sunlight will not break down the product. Therefore there is no need to cover up the fabric with expensive bark or wood chips. After 3-5 years, the plants will have grown over the fabric so that weeds will no longer have a chance. BioCovers® has a lifetime of at least 7 years. The fabric will biodegrade through combined action of microorganism, temperature and humidity. A very responsible, sustainable and organic way of controlling weeds.
The water permeability of BioCovers® (125 l/m²) is 10 times better than woven fabrics which will promote the growth of the young plants.
In rare cases particularly aggressive weeds may still penetrate the fabric, even when the soil has been pre-treated. An anti-weed fabric can never guarantee 100% protection against weeds. Avoid any contact of the product with all types of pesticides, especially herbicides.
