Greenhouse Supplies: Ground Cover Applications, Funtions, Features & Notifications

The applications of ground cover

One, the applications in the greenhouse:

Three application ways of greenhouse ground cover: the whole ground protection, local ground protection and seedbed at the grass-roots level.

1. The whole ground protection
Adopting greenhouse ground spread method, it is applied to the soilless cultivation of vegetables and flowers, crop plants, etc., greenhouse using ground laid the ground directly, does not need to build other grounds. Crops can be put accurately along the mark line on the base. Sometimes, to protect the ground cover or increase the water volume, growers also put a layer of sand around 20 mm above the ground cover.

2. Local ground protection
This usage is mainly cooperated with seedbed, in order to prevent the low part of seedbed from producing weeds to breed disease. Applications of the ground cover at the bottom of the seedbed , which is now one of the most common use of greenhouse in China, in this way to reduce seedling bed bottom water (especially in the case of seedbed whole irrigation), so as to adjust the humidity inside the greenhouse.

3. The seedbed of grass roots
The ground cover can be directly laid on the bed surface, as the support layer for the surface of the bed, simplifying the bed surface supporting structure, so it is suitable for all kinds of containers.

Two, the applications for outdoor

As a kind material of inhibiting weed and keeping the floor clean, ground cover has been widely used on the outdoor potted flowers, nursery, large garden beautification, grape planting, and other fields, and it has become a part of the cultivation mode of high standards in the United States and Europe and other countries. Ground cover can lead to the reduction of a lot of floor construction cost and construction time. If it is cooperated with cover base processing method, it can not only maintain the stability of the ground soil and ground level ground, but also make the problem of drainage, weed suppression, etc. much easier.

Ground cover can be applied to the roots of the trees to protect, the applications in the root of the trees near ground cover can effectively reduce the weeds, thereby reducing the root zone nutrition and moisture loss. In this case, strips of cover and patches, are marked with different markers at the surface as planting incision such as "cross", "the 'T' shape" and "I" glyph. The incision after planting trees will go to a thermal processing, ensuring the integrity and function of cover.

In addition, ground cover of tree roots can be used as protection layer in trees transplanting, in order to reduce the root growth of weeds, prevent invalid tree roots growth, ensuring the tree root permeability, water permeability and so on, simultaneously cover can protect trees root system from damaging in the process of transportation, temporary storage.

To Buy Greenhouse Supplies: greenhouse ground cover features
  •  high strength: due to the use of PP, PE and plastic flat silk , the cover can keep sufficient strength and elongation even in wet state.  
  •  Corrosion resistance: it can stand corrosion in different PH value of soil and water for long.
  •  Good air permeability: gaps between the flat wires ensure the good air permeability and porous.
  •  Fine resistance for microbial: the cover can stand microbe and bug.
  •  Adapted to construction, the light and soft material make transporting, laying and constructing more convenient.
  •  High resistance for breaking, the cover can stand more than 20 kn/m, good creep resistance and corrosion resistance.
  •  Fine resistance of ultraviolet and antioxidant: imported UV and antioxidant ensure good resistance of ultraviolet and antioxidant.

Greenhouse supplies Supplier: Ground cover function and use
  •  Preventing the ground from weeds. Due to cover on the ground prevent direct exposure from sunshine (especially black cover), at the same time the solid structure prevents weeds growing through the cover, so as to ensure inhibition for the growth of weeds.
  •  Eliminating the ground water timely, keeping the floor clean. Drainage performance guarantee the rapid discharge of ground water, coupled with a set of pebble bed and medium sand layer which can effectively inhibit infiltration of soil particles, thus ensuring the surface of the cover clean.
  •  Conducive to the growth of plant roots to prevent root rot. This effect also stems from a ground cover woven structure, laying the structure prevents the roots from producing water, in this way, the air around the roots has certain liquidity, thereby preventing the root rot.
  •  Preventing needless growth of potted flower root, improving the quality of potted flower. When the potted flowers are planted on the ground cover, ground cover can prevent the basin crop roots from growing downward, guaranteeing the quality of potted flowers.
  •  Conducive to cultivation management: most of the fabric are woven with one-way or two-way markers, in this way, flower pots inside the greenhouse or cultivation matrix can be accurately located accordingly.

The ground cloth technology brings about the lawn planting method a fundamental change, make rapid speed and high quality of planting lawn possible. It is used just like carpet, covering vegetation carpet on the hillside, subgrade or flat on the bed and watering, several days later, grass seeds sprout, forming lawn of high quality. Before the seedlings grow up ,it have very good sand-fixation, slope protection , the prevention and control of soil and water loss, such as the road construction project are of great value in environmental protection. In addition, compared with the traditional "turf volume production, because it do not need to take up a lot of farmland to plant lawn after transplanting, it not only avoid the utilization and destruction of a large number of land quality, but also save a lot of the cost of shipping and transplant, reduces the lawn planting cost. The product has been widely applied in the market.

Three, notifications of using ground cover

1. The lap of material
Due to the width of the cover has a certain limitation, in order to ensure continuity in the process of using cover, in the laid of the ground cover, in width direction it has the certain lap, lap length should be not less than 10 cm (indoor) or 20 cm (outdoor). Indoor lap, put naturally, and outdoor lap, some additional fixed measures are advised.

2. Mat layer construction
In order to reach good waterproof, breathable fabric, surface smooth and a certain effect of surface strength, the laying of cover should be handled at the local level. In general, to set coarse sand layer shall be laid 10 centimeters or so, because of the coarse sand have these features such as tough structure under external force, big pore, and deformation, very suitable for the surface of the cover pad. Coarse sand bottom, should determine the treatment according to the local soil conditions. In general, if the soil is strong, good permeability, the coarse sand layer can be laid directly on the surface, otherwise gravel layer or pebble layer should be laid 10 to 15 cm at the bottom of the coarse sand to ensure the waterproof effect of ground base and the strength of the fabric surface, conducive to placement of crops and the workers to walk.
