Covering material for beds - problem solving gardener

Ogorodnik waiting for a lot of trouble: frost, heavy rains, hail, very hot or cold weather, the sun is too bright, plant diseases, weeds and more.Covering material for the beds will largely solve most of the problems.This specially designed material consisting of fibers stabilized propylene (not enter into chemical reactions and can not be decomposed) which are glued at a high temperature, but do not form a continuous film.This nonwoven material is moisture and air, protecting at the same time, plants from too bright sunlight and ultraviolet radiation, limiting the evaporation of water, stabilizing temperature.This is - a great assistant gardener.

Distinguish covering material for beds on the density and the functions that it performs:

  • easily.It has a density of 14-17 g / m2.This type of material is suitable to protect seedlings from frost, dryness and overheating.Thanks to its excellent permeability, you can water the plants without raising the protective cover.When the plants begin to grow active
    ly, they are easily pripodnimut non-woven covering material and not injured (which happens when using plastic film).
  • average.The density of 28-42 g / m2.Scope of application - covering material for greenhouses and tunnels frame.It is used usually in the spring and summer.
  • Thick white.The density of 50-60 g / m2.Due to high density and excellent protection against wind and hail, very heavy rain, frost or sun.It can be used at any time of the year - early spring (protection of seedlings) to late autumn or winter cover crops under.It can be used as a covering material for the roses.For this construction the frame (or buy ready-made), tight this material (you can make special cases, but you can just hide the pieces, fixing them on the edges).All shelter is ready.The same principle can insulate any heat-loving plants in the garden, in the yard, in the country.
  • Thick black.This covering material for beds used mainly to prevent the germination of weeds between the rows and for better warming of the earth.If you use it as a defense against weeds, simply cut a hole in the ground where the plants are located, leaving the rest of the area under a blanket.With this technology it is possible to achieve an earlier ripening.

As you can see, this stuff - just saving for farmers.In the spring it is used as protection against frost, insects, diseases, birds.With its use can be achieved earlier harvests.In the summer - it is an effective protection against overheating, the same insects and strong winds.Also at this time covering material for beds prevents the plants from overheating and drying out, maintaining optimal conditions for growth.In the autumn he again protects against frost and bad weather, prolonging the harvest.In winter, it is possible to use as protection against low temperatures wintering plants or crops.

Such is the universal soldier in the fight for the harvest.But there is, as usual, and some disadvantages.The first - a sufficiently high value of the material, the second - fragility.If you do not use it very carefully, he clings to the tabs, and may break.
