Weed suppression made simple.

Nip weeds in the bud. Literally.

Our 5‑mil, UV-treat­ed poly­eth­yl­ene tarps cre­ate a stale seedbed in as lit­tle as 3 weeks!

Here’s how it works:

  • The black tarp cre­ates a warm, moist envi­ron­ment which quick­ly kills estab­lished weeds and encour­ages rapid weed seed germination.
  • The new­ly emerged weeds then face a dark, suf­fo­cat­ing envi­ron­ment in which they quick­ly die.
  • Worms and oth­er ben­e­fi­cial organ­isms soon appear to decom­pose any organ­ic mat­ter and loosen the soil.
  • In three to four weeks (up to six weeks in win­ter) you will have an almost com­plete­ly com­post­ed and beau­ti­ful stale seedbed!

It’s the clos­est thing yet to ​“easy gardening”!

Greg D.about 1 month agoVerified buyer

Heavy duty tarp IS heavy! I ordered the big one and it took two men to carry it to the garden and unroll it because it’s so heavy duty! I believe that we will be using it for years!

Excellent!

Greg L.about 2 months agoVerified buyer

have not put it out yet. had high winds for days and then got busy with other things will try to get it out in the next few days. The tarp was delivered earlier than expected and except for the wind at a perfect time when I was expecting extra help around the farmette. Can't control the weather.

Great Customer Service

This tarp appears to be good quality, but the shipping company slightly damaged it in shipping (not Farmers Friend's fault by any means).

I reached out to let FF know what happened and they took care of it and made it right immediately!

This is a great company with good products. Thank you FF!!!

Like the 24' width and lighter silage, as it's easier to work with and store on our small farm.
