SmartMat Premium has a unique fibre layer which absorbs and retains moisture allowing healthy plant growth. The structure of the weedmat stops weed growth, while retaining water for slow release into the soil over time. This means the water gets directly where it’s needed.
We recommend to cover your SmartMat with mulch or bark to ensure it lasts many years.
