This weed control fabric has a 100gsm gauge and works blocking the light necessary for plant growth, As it porous, however, water can still get through to prevent soil drying out. 1.5m (5ft) in width with four different lengths available.
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.
