What is a Mesh Groundcover?

A Mesh Groundcover, also known as geotextile or grass control fabric, is a fabric designed to prevent weed growth and is generally made of plastic polymers such as polypropylene, polyethylene or other synthetic materials.

Thanks to its design, the mesh groundcover allows water and the corresponding nutrients to reach the roots, preventing the roots from drowning and allowing the plants to grow strongly.
