TOP PICK

MYPEX

KG VERDICT

Mypex is a perfect product for controlling weeds. It is often used on the KG plot over winter and in early spring outside, or as permanent ground cover in the polytunnels. The lines embedded in the material are a helpful planting guide.

BLACK POLYTHENE SHEET

This black polythene has an extra thick 500 gauge sheet, providing very good light exclusion. It measures 1.8 x 8m (4 x 26ft).

Good in terms of width, this is excellent for getting a very weedy plot under control or killing off grass to establish a new patch over time. Also good in a polytunnel for simple weed suppression.
