Here at Instant Direct we offer all the necessary additional products you’ll need to correctly install your new artificial grass.
As part of the process of installing your artificial grass you will need to install a layer of weed membrane to prevent weeds from growing through your artificial grass whilst also permitting water to easily drain away. To do this will need a robust and reliable weed membrane which is exactly what Instant Direct has to offer.
Our weed membrane is available in 2m wide rolls and sold via the linear metre. This makes purchasing our weed membrane very easy as you can order the exact amount you need, meaning no excess and no waste!
The perfect weed control system, our membrane offers a complete chemical free alternative to pesticides, making our product ideal for use in and around homes and in commercial areas.
Our weed membrane has been specifically constructed for use by both landscapers and horticulturalists, being widely used in both industries. The membrane is produced from black spunbonded polypropylene and high levels of UV stabilisers. With our membrane being spunbonded instead of woven, it can be easily cut without fraying forming at the edges of the cut.
Our weed membrane can be used in conjunction with all of our artificial grass solutions and easily installed during the whole process. All you have to do is cover the entire surface you’re working with in the membrane and then fix into place using Instant Direct’s 150mm hot dipped galvanised securing pegs.
If you have a seam where two pieces of weed membrane join, overlap them by 150mm (6inches) to ensure that no sun light can penetrate to the levels underneath.
What is spunbonded polypropylene?
Chemical resistant and non-toxic, our weed membrane is both lightweight and breathable. ‘Spunbonded’ refers to the process in which our membrane is produced.
Composed of thermal bonded polypropylene filaments that are spun into a multi-direction matrix. This process provides our membrane with enhanced durability and increased resistance, perfect for outdoor use in conjunction with artificial grass.
This is the most widely used production technique for non-woven polymers which produces the highest yield of fibres per kilo.
