WHAT IS THE GSM IN WEED CONTROL FABRIC?

30 November

GSM (grams per square meter) is a measure of the weight or density of a material. In the context of weed control fabric or landscape fabric, the GSM value indicates how much material is present in a given area.

Weed control fabrics can have varying GSM values depending on their intended use and the manufacturer’s specifications. Generally, lower GSM values indicate lighter and potentially less durable fabrics, while higher GSM values suggest heavier and more robust materials.

For weed control fabric, GSM typically ranges from around 50 GSM to 150 GSM or more. Here’s a general guideline:

  • Lightweight (50-70 GSM): Suitable for temporary use or light weed suppression in garden beds or flower pots.
  • Mediumweight (80-100 GSM): Offers a balance between durability and flexibility, suitable for general landscaping purposes.
  • Heavyweight (120 GSM and above): Designed for more extended and robust weed control in areas with heavier weed pressure or for long-term use.

When choosing a weed control fabric, consider the specific requirements of your landscaping project, the expected duration of use, and the intensity of weed pressure in the area. It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for installation and use to ensure optimal performance.
