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”!

35x105 silage tarp

4 out of 5 stars

Dan G.about 1 year agoVerified buyer

I've bought plastic before and in this size. This is, however, the first with the black&white opposite sides. I find that it is much slicker than previous plastic I've used, by which I mean it takes 50% more sandbags to hold it in place. All I can figure is lower friction. I have five such sheets on the ground now and the most recent windstorm moved only the new black&white silage tarp, but not any of the older gray-both-sides sheets. No explanation other than this kind is just plain slicker. Good value, no complaint whatsoever, just observation.

Bought two of the 32x105s. I have already had a 24x105 for three years and it is still strong. I cut these 32's into four sections as my plot sizes are 14x50. Perfect for holding the ground weed free while not in production.
