Weedcheck Weed Control Membrane
We all want a garden that looks clean, tidy, and filled with fresh flowers, and the last thing we need is for pesky weeds to sprout through our rockery features, gaps in our paving or through our lawn. To prevent such a thing, it is always best practice to roll out a later Weedcheck Weed Control Membrane above the sub-base to add a protective layer to your garden surface. Not only does the Membrane prevent weeds from spreading in your garden, but it has also been cleverly designed to be ‘breathable’ and lets air and water seep through to the soil so your garden can bloom.
Benefits of Weedcheck Weed Control Membrane
If you want to keep weeds away from your garden but do not want the entire process to break the bank, then the Weedcheck Weed Control Membrane is an easy and cost-effective way to ensure your garden is as clean and tidy as possible. With its 15-year guarantee, you can rest assured that your garden will be protected for many years.
You do not need any extra supplements or products when installing the Weed Membrane, which is a huge benefit because this keeps your garden free of unnecessary chemicals and saves you from purchasing any extra materials, saving you both time and money.
As we have mentioned before, because of the way the Membrane is developed water and nutrients can pass down to the soil to feed them and therefore your plants, produce and flowers will receive all the nutrients they need and you will end up with a weed-free, healthy garden.
Once the Weedcheck weed fabric has been properly installed, no maintenance is required outside of your regular gardening. This is perfect for those who are looking for a one-stop-shop solution for their weed problem.
Protects Decorative Aggregates
You need not worry about any of the Decorative Stones or Aggregates being completely lost or destroyed during rainy weather because the Weed Fabric works as a protective layer to gather them in a tidy manner. This means that you won’t need to replenish your stones and aggregates as often, especially during England’s rainy weather.
Weedcheck Membrane in your Garden
If you have a walkway or driveway that you have filled with aggregates such as Shingles or Scalpings, then installing a layer of Weed Fabric underneath is essential to ensure that there aren’t any weeds poking through and destroying the aesthetics.
Gardens our outdoor areas that get a lot of foot -traffic will benefit from just so the walkway remains clear and weed-free for a long period of time. Walkways can be paved with Sandstone or Porcelain Paving which can handle heavy traffic but cannot always prevent weeds from coming out, hence a layer of Weed Fabric will come in handy.
The last thing you want after working hard planting your flowers is for weeds to pop through and ruin the entire garden area. This is why we strongly suggest installing a layer of weed fabric above the sub-base to ensure that not only do your flowers receive all the helpful nutrients but also keep the weeds at bay. To give your flower beds an extra boost check out our Wessex Soils range to give your flowers the best chance from the get-go.
Under decking with mulch
If you have chosen to have composite or natural wood decking in your garden, then you cannot skip out on installing a layer of weed fabric to guarantee the best results. There is a high possibility that weeds will come through the gaps between the decking boards and create a look that is unprofessional and messy.

How to Install Weedcheck Weed Control Membrane
To install the Weed Membrane in an area covered in aggregates, start by removing any plants and vegetation and clear the area of any sharp objects that could potentially damage the Weedcheck. We also advise you to remove any bulbs from the area as well.
On the other hand, if you are laying the Weedcheck in a garden area, you need to prepare the soil. Start by removing all the weeds you can see and then apply plant feed around the area.
Once your area is completely clean, go ahead and lay down the Weed Membrane over the necessary area and make sure to secure the edges carefully. Get your hands on a garden spade and dig down around 150mm deep and tuck in the Weedcheck vertically.
If you end up using joins, then we recommend an overlap of 100mm. You can always use pins to keep everything in place but the best practice is to use mulch to keep everything in its proper place; you can also use stones to keep the membrane from moving around whilst completing this project.
Now you can go ahead and place your plants on top and get them ready for planting.
Next, get a sharp cutting tool and cut a cross on the membrane, open it up and scoop out the soil underneath. Water the area and place your plant in the hole. Place we membrane back and be careful to ensure that there are no soil sediments left above the membrane.
To be extra cautious you can always trim a spare piece of the membrane and use it to cover the cross.
Now you can cover the bed with the mulch of your choice. If you choose aggregates or coconut mulch, add 40mm worth; if you have selected bark mulch, add enough to cover a depth of 50-60mm.
Finally, make sure that Weedcheck is covered with mulch within 24 hours of laying.
