See here how to install DuPont™ Plantex® Gold

Prepare the soil and rake if necessary

Make sure all weeds are thoroughly removed from the installation area before laying Plantex® Gold.

Roll out Plantex® Gold 

For large areas, overlap Plantex® Gold lengths by at least 10 cm to prevent weed growth along the edges. Use Plantex® Anchor Pins to secure the joins. Apply at least 2 pins per running meter.On large unplanted areas weight Plantex® Gold down with stones or with the new plants to ensure that no movement occurs whilst planting through.  

 

Cut an “X” shape in Plantex® Gold 

 

Using sharp scissors or a knife, make the cut either over an existing plant or at the position where the new plant is to go. Work Plantex® Gold gently over existing plants or plant through with new ones.

 

Covering

Plantex® Gold can be used covered as well as uncovered. If you use Plantex® Gold covered, apply at least a 5 cm layer of mulch e.g. bark, straw, gravel, decorative chippings etc. Plantex® Gold is very strong, light and versatile, it will last up to 4-5 years when used uncovered and 25 when covered.
Low maintenance landscaping begins with the right choice of weed control fabrics
