Weed control / Root control

Weed control sheets

High-performance weed control sheets made of polyester Spunbond nonwoven fabric. They are superior in light blocking and flame resistance properties and prevent the germination of flying seeds. What's more, featuring water permeability and air permeability as well, the sheets keep weeds out without affecting plants. They provide substantial labor savings in weeding work and are useful for maintaining the aesthetic quality of cities and towns.

Root control sheets

The Needle Punched MARIX root control sheets has root repellent on them, controlling roots from spreading in their growth direction and causing them to grow in other directions. They control the entry of roots and effectively keep structures from being damaged.
