Weed Gunnel

Available Sizes:
By the metre in 2 widths 900 mm and 1,800 mm

BFA Organic Certified, Weed Gunnel is 100% polypropylene, non-woven matting, especially designed to block weeds.

Weed Gunnel creates a barrier against weeds around the base of trees, plants, poles and posts while still allowing for natural air and water penetration. Suitable for use with crops, fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, pot planters, shrubs around bases of posts and poles and fence lines.

Weed Gunnel is Hydrophilic and UV treated during manufacture. The UV treatment gives the matting an extended life of 3–4 years in full sun conditions or 6–8 years if covered. The Hydrophilic breaks down the surface tension of the matting allowing greater air and moisture to pass through to your soil below.
