Eco Gards are the natural solution to get trees and plants off to a great start

Eco Gard protects your plants from animals, wind and spray drift. It provides a plant-friendly micro-climate for your plants, allowing light and air in to ensure your plants get off to a great start.

Biodegradable and made from sustainable materials, Eco Gards are the natural choice for your planting project.

Eco Gards are made of natural materials

Jute is a natural fibre which is biodegradable and sustainably grown. Mainly grown in Bangladesh and India, jute is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertiliser or pesticides (unlike cotton). It's referred to as the ‘golden fibre’ due to its colour and cost-effectiveness.

Bamboo is another natural product we use for stakes. Like jute, it requires no inputs apart from a hot and wet climate. Bamboo stakes are robust and reusable, but will also break down naturally over time.

Our mulch mats are 100% recycled wool. Not only do they prevent weed growth, they also absorb and release water, as well as providing nutrients to the plant as they slowly break down.
