The first completely organic weed suppression blanket, which fully breaks down to nutritious matter over 4 to 5 years leaving no synthetic residues, is now available exclusively from Hy-Tex (UK) Limited.

Ecotex MulchMat™ (which also passes the cigarette burn test) is an effective, easy to use and economical solution for low maintenance weed control and moisture conservation in planted areas and has a very low carbon footprint.

It may look and feel like conventional non-woven, petrochemical based weed control fabric but is the only membrane made purely from an environmentally friendly alternative called Polylactic Acid (PLA).

PLA is made from 100% annually renewable, starch rich vegetables and production requires fewer fossil fuel resources and generates less greenhouse gases than traditional plastic fabrics. Furthermore, Ecotex™ felt is the only weed control fabric certified to the stringent EN 13432:2000 test for compostability.

Ecotex MulchMat™, which is earthy brown coloured, is also stronger, more durable and easier to handle than any previous “degadable” fabrics and resists airbourne seed settlement far better.
