Matrix 85 Landscaping Fabric


Matrix 85 landscaping fabric is a three layer, technologically advanced textile created to actually deliver on the functionality expected from landscaping cloth. Each layer has a specific purpose, and when melded together, create a fabric that allows air and water flow but prevents plant sprouts from penetrating.

Only 3 layer product with 2 distinct structures

Layer 1 (Top) = non-woven fabric
UV protected Non-woven made on state-of-the-art equipment to allow even balanced strength in both machine and cross direction. It has excellent durability, a soft feel and a non-slip surface that provides increased safety in wet conditions.
Layer 2 (Middle) = Nex Matrix
Designed to both catch and block all types of weeds and reinforce the top and bottom layers. Mesh pockets also help control soil erosion.
Layer 3 (Bottom) = non-woven fabric
UV protected, evenly balanced non-woven bottom layer with excellent strength. This layer of fabric has been designed to perform in all soil conditions and climates.
  • • Excellent weed and erosion control

  • • Distributes water evenly with a steady slow-drip to soil underneath
  • • Extra strong grid design helps block weeds from penetrating fabric
  • • Easy to cut and install, stays in place after installation
  • • Environmentally friendly material
