Highlights & Features
The mulch mat Kokos MMK600 is a medium-weight fiber mat, made of degradable, renewable coconut fibers with quilted PE porous film on the underside. The black PE porous film with a basis weight of 600 g/m² has 62 holes per square centimeter, which taper downwards in a funnel shape in a ratio of 4:1. The film has a very high stretching capacity to prevent footfall damage. It decomposes into its components, carbon dioxide and water, after a few years and is therefore considered completely environmentally neutral.
Effectively reduces weed and plant growth
The soil is shaded and thus protected from drying out due to wind and sun. Evaporation of soil moisture is proven to be reduced by up to 50%. An optimal microclimate develops, which has a beneficial effect on the root growth of the planting. The coconut fiber layer also provides excellent thermal insulation and significantly extends the service life of the PE film.
Protects against erosion caused by slope, rain and wind
At the same time, the mulch mat provides reliable protection against rain, wind and water erosion immediately after installation, thus giving slopes and steep walls the necessary support prior to planting. Plantings can be carried out in combination with the mulch mat at low cost, and with less maintenance in the long term. The soil is darkened and thus the germination of undesirable herbs and grasses is prevented. However, due to the water and air permeable pore foil, an optimal water and gas balance of the covered areas is given.
Fixing and anchoring by means of ground anchors or wooden pegs
The mulch mat Kokos MMK600 is laid flat or in strips parallel to the planting. The mulch mat can be easily cut with scissors. Overlaps at the longitudinal and transverse joints should be 5-10 cm. The fastening of the sheets in the ground can be done either with the ground anchor BA200 or BA230 or the wooden peg beech HPB 300. We recommend to use at least 3-5 fasteners per square meter.
