Coir groundcover is an environmentally friendly solution to protecting areas from erosion control or depletion of soil when damaged by water and wind. Gardener Supplies coir groundcover is manufactured from natural fibres, primarily coconut, offering a durable natural fibre surface that will organically breakdown. Coir matting reduces soil loss and creates a micro-climate to promote growth of plants. They are particularly useful in exposed sites such as uplands, coasts, elevated areas and embankments. Coir matting will decompose slowly to provide prolonged ground protection.
