Ecomerchant Coir Mulchmat is a biodegradable blanket of upper layer of coir with two biodegradable foils underneath to prevent light penetration. The foils have off-set slits to allow water through. The mat is to be laid over the prepared earth, and rolled out in the direction of the slope.

The bottom membrane prevents loss of moisture, controls erosion and provides non-chemical control of weeds. The bottom membrane is manufactured from biodegradable plastic. Mulchmats provide weed control and mulching typically for at least 3 years.

Nursery-like conditions can be achieved easily and by environmentally friendly means. Ecomerchant Coir Mulchmats enhance growth without the need for further mulching, chemicals or large scale maintenance. The natural upper layer blends with landscaping, protects the bottom membrane from ultra-violet light, controls water shed from gradients and regulates soil temperature.

The Bio-Mulchfoil is made from starch. It decomposes into water and carbon dioxide. The degradation starts with UV-light and heat through e.g. micro-organism.  The degradation of the Bio-Mulchfoil continues even in the night or cloudy weather conditions.
