How Geotextiles Can Help Your Lawn & Garden, Ewa, Hawaii

Proper lawn and garden maintenance is more complicated than watering plants and ensuring everything gets ample sunlight. Thankfully, there are many tools today that make landscaping easier with a little planning. Geotextiles are one of those tools. Below, Wisdom Industries, an irrigation equipment supplier in Halawa, HI, breaks down what this low-tech device is and how it will improve your yard.

A Guide to Geotextiles

What Are They?

Geotextiles are a type of fabric used in lawn and garden maintenance. Many are made of coir, or coconut fiber, which degrades into humus and improves the soil after three to five years. Geotextiles allow water to flow through them at various degrees depending on their thickness. You can choose a fabric depth based on your personal needs. 

How Can They Help Your Lawn & Garden?

lawn and gardenWhen creating garden beds, it’s important to prevent erosion of the soil over time and with heavy rains. Place geotextiles down before adding fertile dirt to keep the soil separate from the grass around it and provide a stable environment for plants to grow.

Geotextiles also prevent weed growth by creating a barrier most plants cannot grow through and mitigating sunlight to lower levels of soil. Some lawn and garden companies also use this material to separate different areas in a garden, such as under crushed rock aggregate paths to keep the rock particles from mixing with the dirt.

 

Home gardeners and landscapers can incorporate geotextiles into their lawn and garden maintenance to reduce weeds and erosion and separate different soil areas. This inexpensive material can save hours of maintenance and even prevent your garden from losing soil and disintegrating.
