Wool Mulchmat is a fully biodegradable non-woven wool matting used in the establishment of trees, shrubs and groundcovers in landscape plantings. In the early stage of plant growth Wool Mulchmat prevents soil erosion, suppresses weeds, preserves soil moisture and insulates plants from temperature extremes thus ensuring swift and sure establishment. Over time Wool Mulchmat fully biodegrades, releasing plant nutrients which provide an additional boost for growing plants.

 

Terra Lana Mulch Mat is an agri textile made from pure wool and recycled wool waste. There is also a reinforced version which is strengthened with jute, a natural vegetable fibre (also known as hessian). This is ideal for stabilising banks and consolidating soil on slopes. Both versions are supplied in either rolls or mats pre-cut to the centre from one side to allow easy fitting around the base of trees and shrubs.

BENEFITS OF WOOL MULCH MAT

 

FULLY BIODEGRADABLE

No unsightly partly degraded material to remove as with other synthetic weed mats.

Will not leave unhealthy residues. The rate of degradation is dependent on soil moistureconditions. For example if the soil/mulch mat is continually wet it will degrade faster. Mulchmat typically takes 18 months to 2 years to totally degrade.

 

SUPPRESSES WEEDS

Suppresses weed growth for first 8 - 12 months, resulting in lower gardening costs

 

RETAINS WATER

Allows water movement through to the soil and reduces 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 assists in extending the growing season.

 

PROVIDES NUTRIENTS

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

 

EASY TO APPLY

Simply roll out Mulchmat and fix firmly in place using pegs to ensure the matting cannot be blown away. Alternatively it can be overlaid with bark chips.

 

AESTHETIC APPEAL

Muted natural colouring blends well with plants and surroundings.

 

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

Recycled wool is an abundant natural renewable resource.

 

Mulchmat Whitianga Sports ComplexWe have just finished the landscaping on the bund for the Whitianga Sports Complex and are really happy with the Terra Lana Mulchmat.

"It made walking up and down the slope possible, it minimised erosion and allowed us to carry on working no matter the weather conditions."
