Ground Cover Fabric & Frost Protection Fabric

Put a stop to weeds while allowing water and nutrients to pass!

Ground Cover fabric is referred to by several names as it was developed with having one purpose: to lure moisture into the soil and to help restrict weed growth.

Ground Cover (weed barrier, conservation fabric or weed block) is an engineered black woven polypropylene geotextile fabric. It’s designed to endure extended periods of sunlight, resist insect and wildlife damage and allow water penetration. All our ground covers come with a woven green marker every 12 inches. This marker helps for easy guidance while installing or lining potted plants.

NYP also supplies 6” “U” shaped wire sod staples, for holding the fabric in place during installation. (See bottom of this page.)

  • 3 oz. per square yard
  • black color
  • 2500 hr UV exposure rating; 70% retained fabric integrity
  • 11 X 11 weave yarn count per square inch
  • available in 100 yard and 1000 yard continuous length rolls

TO CALCULATE HOW MANY SQUARE FEET OR SQUARE YARDS YOU WILL NEED:

  1. To calculate the total square footage, multiply the number of feet in width x the number of feet in length.
  2. To calculate the square yards, divide the total square footage by 9.

Example:
4’ X 300’ = 1200 sq ft
1200 sq ft/9 = 133.33
