Stocking Up For Spring: What Landscapers Need

Spring is approaching, those lighter spring mornings followed by lighter evenings allow more time to be spent and enjoyed in the garden for some. For landscapers this means a bustling work schedule and not enough hours in the day to get everything done.

Here at Growtivation, we believe in making the lives of landscapers easier with landscaping products that work, while not compromising on performance and quality. Let’s delve deeper into the essential landscape products all landscapers need in their toolkit this spring.

Weed control fabrics

A landscape that has sufficient weed control ensures the hard-work undertaken by landscapers isn’t ruined by pesky weeds months down the line. A garden lined with weed control will also be appreciated by clients, as they can spend more time enjoying their garden rather than maintaining it.

Weedtex is a suitable weed control, which makes the lives of landscapers easier by being easy to cut to slot in plants, shape and install into the ground. This weed control fabric performs best under decking and flowerbeds, ensuring a layer of mulch covers the landscape fabric is vital due to its light duty nature.

If a stronger duty weed control fabric is required Landtex is the perfect landscape fabric for the job. The medium duty property of this weed control makes it suitable for use under rockery and scree gardens too, a tougher choice to defend from weeds.

Geotextile fabric for ground stabilisation

Patios are a popular garden feature to add outdoor dining space or to provide a walkway, allowing easy access around the garden through all seasons. A well-laid patio requires high-skill and expertise on what geotextile fabric to use.

Minimise the risk of re-work by laying a ground stabilisation geotextile fabric, Groundtex, a woven fabric, has the strength to be used below ground to stabilise the soil and resist tearing. This geotextile fabric even has the ability to suppress weeds, reducing maintenance requirements and ensuring the finished aesthetic remains unspoiled by pesky weeds a few weeks down the line.

Landscape fabric for drainage

A garden that considers drainage, is one that will not be ruined by waterlogging when the wet and stormy weather hits. So, ensuring drainage systems are built into the garden is key.

Using a landscape fabric like Draintex will allow stormwater to drain through the fabric and be directed to the ground below. This drainage landscape fabric has a stable but open structure making it ideal for lining trenches when constructing land drains.
