Growgrid Landscaping Fabric Planting Mats

GrowGrid mats are the natural way to keep on top of weeds in your vegetable garden. The mats are made from a semi permeable weed control fabric with heat sealed planting holes for growing a variety of crops. The mats come in a range of sizes with different size and distance planting holes to suit the plants you wish to grow. The growgrid helps warm the ground in the spring, prevents weeds growing around your plants and protects your garden soil from leaching in wet weather.

Space between plants: 18cm.
Space between rows: 18cm.
Small GrowGrid Mat: 1.5m x 1.8m. Will fit 66 Plants
Large GrowGrid Mat: 1.5m x 4m. Will fit 132 Plants

Extra Large GrowGrid Mat: 1.5m x 16m. Will fit 528 plants

Suitable for:
Onions, Peas, Tarragon, Radishes, Carrots, Herbs, Lettuce, Spinach, Beans, Oriental Leaves, Basil and more.

We recommend feeding your soil with organic matter before putting down your GrowGrid mat as the cover won't be removed until you have harvested your crop.

Simply place the mat on your prepared ground and fix using ground fabric staples. Ensure theGrowGrid mat is a tight fit as any loose ends can be caught by the wind.

The GrowGrid is a long lasting product and can be used for up to 5 years if folded and stored for future use.

Great for onions as there is very little weeding. I highly recommend it.

Arrived in super quick time. Easy to lay down and plant into just level the area and roll it out. Quality of product seems very good. Could do with a few more anchors as I live in a windy area but overcame that easy. Overall a great idea and I will be ordering more if it lives up to half the expectations.

I bought two large sheets of earlier this year in conjunction with 10 sacks of Envirogrind as my soil is pretty poor. In the last few years I have been pleased to get a couple of dozen onions. This year I have Well ove a hundred and three or four times as many shallots and the size is amazing with onions approaching the size of my clenched fist! Taking up about a quarter of my plot I never had to weed once - now that's amazing.... I'll be investing in a couple of additional sheets in the spring too - I just want it everywhere!

I used grid mat A last year on my allotment and I was overjoyed when everyone else was weeding I was enjoying a glass of wine in the sunshine. Took them up after cropping and not a weed in sight. I’m now buying every mat to use this year. Frays slightly at the edges but very impressive. I’ve been recommending them to my allotment buddies.

Laying down the mat was simple, had to use extra fixings due to the high winds. Only time will tell if it's up to the job.

Brilliant for saving labour time on weeding is the main thing and the reason we bought it. My wife will be buying more of it for growing carrots in the very near future. Sorting home saved carrot seed today.

Have not used it yet but it seems like a great idea for outdoor gardens especially for weed control.

I used the Grow Grid D last year for onions and had a superb crop. I used the same one for overwintered garlic which is now flourishing very well. I am so pleased that I have bought several more of this type for this years onions and I intend to try with cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower this year too. Really helps when you have a busy work and home life and still want to keep your garden in ship-shape condition and get wonderfully healthy plants.

Hi again, Friend told me not to use plastic over soil cause when heated by sun the toxins from plastic will enter soil and in plants is that true for this product Thanks Phylicea
Answered by Niall

We have never had any issues with this. The Grow Grids are coated to stop any leaching in to the soil so i can't see this being an issue. As i said i use them for most of my garden and i grow as organically as possible. Regards Niall Quickcrop

I am afraid we don't presently ship to Canada or the US. We hope to be in a position to do so in the not to distant future. I have my entire garden under Grow Grids and it has cut my work load in half which is great. Regards Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Jane
on February 23rd, 2018
How do you keep the edges down?!
Answered by Niall
on February 23rd, 2018
Hi Jane. They come with pegs but to be honest you would be better using some of the ground staples that we sell. They are fantastic for holding down mypex and Grow Grids. Just put the word Staple in the search bar and you will see the item i am talking about.
Asked By Alan
on September 07th, 2017
I assume the mats can be cut to size fairly successfully?
Answered by Andrew
on September 08th, 2017
Hi Alan. You can cut the growgrid mats but I am not sure this is something I would advise. The key to the longevity of the mats (I have been using the same one for 5 years now and can't see why it won't be good for another 5) is the holes and the edges are heat sealed. The fabric itself is a weave so if it is cut it will start to fray. I f you had to cut I would fold 2-3 cm over to create a hem and staple along the edge to keep it tidy. I hope this helps. Andrew

Answered by Andrew

Asked By Linda Shiells

Thanks for your answer to my last question. I will certainly be ordering one or 2 mats. We havee just erected a polytunnel and I am on a steep leaning curve. I amsure Ive read somewhere to fertilise under the mat before laying and planting. Is there an all around fertliser you recommend? Im planning on starting with some winter onions, leeks and beans.
Answered by Andrew
on November 03rd, 2015
yes, envirogrind is the perfect fertiliser, highly recommended.
Asked By Linda shiells
on November 01st, 2015
Is the grow grid planting mat suitable for use in poly tunnels?
Answered by Andrew
on November 02nd, 2015
Hi Linda. Yes, the Growgrid works just as well in a tunnel as it does outside. In fact it will help reduce watering as soil evaporation is reduced in hot weather. I hope this helps. Andrew
Asked By Paola Vietri
on September 21st, 2015
What about slugs? Won't this product encourage them?
Answered by Andrew
on September 22nd, 2015
Hi Paola I haven't noticed any significant increase in slug populations when using these mats though I do take your point. I guess you need to weigh up the two, I know with my busy work life that I find the greatly reduced weeding a real blessing and have not been too bothered by slugs. I use the mat 'D' a lot of onions and garlic which aren't really bothered by slugs anyway and genuinely find them excellent (the mats, not the slugs!). I hope this answers your question. Andrew
