SPECIFICATIONS

 

Terra Lana Grasstrike is a fully biodegradable non-woven wool matting used in the establishment of turf grasses on landscaped soil. Grasstrike works by providing a protective layer over grass seedlings, allowing sufficient sunlight to penetrate to the grass bed but helping prevent soil erosion and moisture loss. Grasstrike can be left to fully biodegrade, providing additional fertiliser if desired.

 

Terra Lana Grasstrike is made from 100% wool, both new wool and recycled wool waste.

BENEFITS OF GRASSTRIKE

 

FULLY BIODEGRADABLE

Grasstrike can be left to fully biodegrade, or remaining fragments can be safely mown away when the grass is 8-10cm high. Once decomposed it leaves no unhealthy residues.

 

PROTECTS GRASS SEEDLINGS

Seed and topsoil are protected against erosion by wind and rain.  Damage and loss of seed by birds is reduced assisting even germination.

 

RETAINS WATER

During precipitation Grasstrike acts as a sponge, holding the water amongst it's fibres then releasing it as the ground dries. It allows water movement through to the soil whilst reducing evaporation from the soil, thus gaining maximum benefit from irrigation and rain.

 

INSULATES

The natural insulation properties of wool protect the soil against extremes in temperature i.e. frosts.  In cold weather, wool absorbs moisture and in doing so releases heat. This helps keep the soil at a more even temperature and promotes rapid growth even in cold weather. The planting season can effectively be extended, an advantage for any landscaping contractor.

 

PROVIDES NUTRIENTS

Nutrients released include nitrogen, potassium, sulphur and other trace elements.

 

EASY TO APPLY

Simply roll out Grasstrike over the seedbed and fix firmly in place using biodegradable pegs to ensure good contact with the soil. This minimises lifting of the fabric by the germinating grass.

 

SUSTAINABLE INGREDIENTS

Recycled wool is an abundant natural renewable resource.
