About Our Membrane Roll
All of our membrane rolls are easy to install and easy to cut to size permeable and weed preventing layers that are installed under gravel driveways, car parks, patios, gardens and even garden building bases. Available in a number of sizes we have a membrane to fit your projects needs perfectly whether it be a small base or a large car park that needs a membrane. A membrane is installed to prevent weeds from growing up and through the ground to disrupt your landscaped area whilst still allowing water, air and nutrients through to the soil and plant roots below.
Why Should I Use Membrane In My Project?
Although they may only be a small part of a project, membranes can be a vital addition to an installation. Providing you with a dual purpose product that will stop weeds and help prevent surface water build-up. Below is more information on just a few benefits of our membrane rolls.
Easy To Install
Used in conjunction with u-pins, membrane rolls are easy to install. Simply roll out your sheet in place (you can cut to shape with a pair of tough scissors if required) before pinning in place using u-pins at intervals of approximately 1 metre. Then you can continue your project on top of the now installed and secured membrane sheet.
There are two types of weeds that may appear in your project, annual and perennial weeds. Annual weeds are plants such as hairy bittercress and chickweed which have just a one-year lifecycle which ends with them leaving seeds for the following year. Perennial weeds are plants like dandelions which can last for years and years unless you remove them yourself, you may have to remove the main root or use a weedkiller on these. Our membrane prevents these from growing up and reaching the products or materials you have installed above, for example on a gravel driveway, the membrane would prevent the weeds from reaching X-Grid and the gravel it is filled with. This prevention stops your landscaped area from being disrupted or damaged by weeds that have grown.
