How to use
Preparing the area
- Clear away any weeds in the application area completely before using Westland Weed Stop; it’s important that you remove the roots of any perennial weeds too.
- Water plants and soil before applying to ensure the soil is moist.
- We recommend wearing gloves when handling Weed Stop.
- Spread a layer of Westland Weed Stop 3cm deep over the soil surface, ensuring that the soil is evenly and completely covered.
- When spreading, break up any clumps and fluff up the mulch to incorporate air.
- After spreading, water over the surface of the mulch – this will lock the fibres together.
- Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust.
- If any weeds appear, remove them as soon as possible to prevent them from spreading.
- Westland Weed Stop will stay effective for years after application, but may need occasional replenishment to maintain a thick layer on top of the soil surface.
- A 90 litre bag can cover up to five square metres at a depth of 3cm.
