What is geotextile fabric?
Geotextile fabric is a specialised material designed for geotechnical and soil management tasks. It offers multi-functional solutions such as filtration, drainage, separation, reinforcement, and stabilization. Produced using a needle-punching technique from recycled materials, it's integral to civil construction, gardening, and landscaping.
This fabric is typically grey and comes in various sizes, including bulk rolls of 50m or 10m lengths, with widths of 1m or 1.2m. Its applications range from stabilising soil, preventing erosion, ensuring proper drainage, to reducing weed growth and paving reinforcement.
Geotextile can be used for:
Separation of soils
Preventing soil erosion
Maintaining soil moisture
Drainage and filtration
Retaining wall filtration
Ag pipe wrapping
Reduction in weeds
Protection in malthoid bitumen membranes
Does weed mat let water through?
While both weed mats and mulch mats serve as landscape fabrics to combat weed growth, they differ in their composition and permeability. Weed mats are crafted from woven polypropylene, resulting in a more rigid structure. Due to its woven design, it doesn't offer as much permeability, which means without holes, water drainage might be limited.
On the other hand, mulch mats are constructed of spun (non-woven) polypropylene, giving them a felt-like texture. This non-woven design inherently grants them superior permeability rates for both water and air. To summarise, while weed mats can let some water through, their woven composition restricts optimal water flow. In contrast, mulch mats, due to their non-woven structure, allow better water and air permeation. (still note that water permeability is not excellent with either as both are used as a weed control mechanism) When making a decision between the two, it's crucial to consider the specific needs of your garden or landscaping project.
Do weed mats work?
They are very effective in stopping weed growth, however weed mat may also block water and beneficial insects from reaching the soil. Therefore, it needs to be considered what project you are considering in terms of utilising weed mat for.
