Here at GCL Products, we supply a range of weather-resistant, heavy-duty, tear-resistant, permeable and easy to install membrane rolls which can be used in almost all landscaping and gardening projects to create a long-lasting barrier between the ground and your chosen surface product or covering above. Membrane sheets are used in conjunction with many forms of paving, decking, paths or rubber surfaces. Each sheet provides you with a protective layer which prevents annual and perennial weeds from reaching the surface whilst still being permeable and allowing rain, surface water, air and nutrients to drain naturally through to the ground and plant roots below.
Membranes are a very important part of a lot of projects and are very easy to install. Cut or strim the area of existing vegetation down to the root before ensuring there are no fibrous stalks present as these could penetrate the membrane OR excavate the entire area to leave an exposed soil surface. Roll out your membrane and position where you would like to install it before securing in place using either galvanised steel membrane staples or plastic fixing pegs at approximately 1 metre intervals. Ensure the membrane is correctly secured and it will not move before continuing with the rest of your installation.
The woven membrane is commonly used as a weed membrane to control the growth of annual and perennial weeds. These sheets are SUDs compliant, meaning that they allow rainwater to soak through them and into the ground below. This ensures that the ground is healthy whilst ensuring surface water build-up. Importantly, this sheet also prevents surface water build-up which could lead to flooding. Importantly, this sheet also prevents unwanted shrubs from rising to the surface above.
