Benefits

  • Air and moisture penetration; the material insulates the area under the fleece, whilst still allowing air and moisture to pass through. It works as an effective climatic barrier buffering plants and soil from temperature extremes
  • Horticultural Fleece is fully UV stabilized, giving the fleece an extended lifespan
  • Strength; The polypropylene non woven style of manufacture provides excellent resistance to tearing and stretching in both directions. Provided proper application and handling of the fleece, it can be used over several seasons. After its use, it can be processed via traditional recycling systems, leaving no harmful toxins or heavy metal residue after breakdown
