Manchester, United Kingdom, November 09, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Manchester-based gardening company, DIY Matters, has launched a new product designed to lower Britain’s carbon footprint.
The newly developed garden membrane, Biodegradable Frost Protection Fleece, can be disposed of in a household green garden waste bin.
It will then be sent to a “municipal composting facility” where it can decompose - which it cannot do in a regular compost heap.
Plants wearing DIY Matters’ Frost Protection Fleece will remain protected during autumn and winter.
This defensive barrier lets plants breathe while keeping frost, wind and pests at bay.
The biodegradable Frost Protection Fleece is designed to protect new shoots, spring flowers and newly seeded areas. In addition, it is an extremely light weight fabric - so it allows delicate plants to grow.
Plants still get the air, moisture and light they need because of the special material. It wraps easily around most plants.
By preparing for cold weather using DIY Matters’ Frost Protection Fleece, gardening enthusiasts can use winter as a time to rearrange parts of the garden - without worrying about their plants getting damaged.
Moving plants around can give a garden a completely new look.
The biodegradable material is specially manufactured from a renewable and sustainable biopolymer material called Polyactic Acid - which is derived from plant sugars. It has been scientifically tested and proven to be both biodegradable and compostable.
DIY Matters supplies a wide range of landscape fabric, which also includes - weed control fabric and general garden membranes.
Weed membrane and landscaping membrane are vital to maintaining a healthy, weed free beautiful garden.
DIY Matters was set up as a subsidiary to one of the largest importers of garden fabric in the UK - giving it unique access to some of the world's most effective landscape fabric.
