Weed Suppressant Membrane

Membranes are a great way to prevent weeds and unwanted growth interrupting your gravel path; they also help to keep your gravel clean by keeping it away from the soil beneath. 

Laying a weed membrane can help improve the look of your gravel and is easy to do by following these handy hints!

Choose the right membrane: 

Membranes come in various thicknesses.  Thinner varieties are more suited to lighter domestic projects and can be used on planting beds and in areas where there is little pedestrian traffic. This thinner material is easier to cut and helps keep the soil beneath healthy by allowing water, nutrients and air to permeate. 

Thicker membranes are suitable for vehicular or heavy pedestrian use areas. This is harder to cut and more resistant to damage, although nutrient and water can still pass through the fabric. If you are using a sharp, angular material such as slate on your path we would recommend using a thicker membrane to prevent piercing.

Make sure the space is clear:

When you have chosen the area that you want to cover, make sure it is clear of plants and other debris. Short stems and sharp rocks can pierce the membrane and may mean that weeds can come through. 

Weed membrane can be very effective but in areas where weeds are particularly determined we would recommend spraying weed killer before covering with membrane.

Laying the membrane:

When you’re laying the membrane make sure that any joints and gaps are overlapped by at least 100mm. You can secure the membrane with pegs or with large stones. Once you’ve secured the fabric you can cut away any excess material.

The right gravel:

If you are using your weed membrane for a path then we would recommend a 14-20mm decorative chipping that should be laid at a depth of 50mm. However if you have chosen a smaller chipping then lay this a little thinner to stop you ‘sinking’ into it.
