Greenhouse ground cover

Greenhouse ground covers provide a boundary between gravel and soil so weeds have no chance to grow. It provides a healthy balance of air, water and nutrient exchange, creating an optimal living environment for the crop. At Royal Brinkman, we offer a variety of ground covers.

Ground cover for horticulture

The use of ground cloth has several functions in horticulture, including:
  • Light reflection: in crops where maximum use is made of available light, white ground cloth is laid down to maximize the reflection of sunlight;
  • Weed control: in many crops ground cloth is placed on the ground in the greenhouse to prevent weeds from growing;
  • Crop rotation: during crop rotation, a ground cloth called a canopy drape is used. With the help of the cloth, the old crop is pulled out of the paths;
  • Cover: ground cloth is regularly used on cultivation tables. 
Royal Brinkman has various ground covers in it's assortment. When you want to buy ground cover, it is important to think about the application of the ground cover. For example, there is white ground cover Phormiflex and black ground cover Phormisol with diamonds or lines available. Moreover, the range of ground cloth also differs in strength. After all, ground cover can be used for protection on the one hand and for clearing the greenhouse on the other. Because of these different applications, we have different types of ground cover in our range. In addition, the ground cover is UV-stabilized, making it suitable for many applications in horticulture.

Moreover, the Phormisol 100 is UV-stabilized. In contrast, Phormisol 137 ground cloth is used for intensive use.
