Hy-Tex Covertex™ ground cover is an extremely versatile landscaping and horticultural fabric for long-term weed control, moisture conservation and separation.
Covertex™ is a premium grade woven membrane designed to offer the optimum balance between shade and permeability; and has a high degree of UV stabiliser added to protect it from the harmful effects of exposure to sunlight.

Landscaping Benefits

The dense black superior weave of Covertex™ effectively suppresses competitive weed growth, conserves ground moisture, maintains a clean surface, and creates a favourable environment for health plant growth. Consequently, usingCovertex™ ground cover in planted borders can dramatically reduce the costs and time involved in maintenance, and minimise undesirable herbicide use.
The fabric also has all the properties of a standard geotextile, so can be safely used for separation applications (Such as playpits, footpaths and bridleways).

Horticultural Benefits

Using Covertex™ in display areas, nurseries and greenhouses will provide a clean, free draining and hard wearing surface. While the pre-marked white grid aids spacing.
In orchards and fruit beds the fabric is regularly used to maintain a clean crop and reduce maintenance and disease problems.
