respect the soil in your garden: don’t add plastic to it - black plastic sheeting
Before it's too late, I have to solve one of my most annoying problems: deliberately putting plastic in the soil.
For example, black plastic film is sold as a covering.
This thing seems to be a treatment at first.
To solve the problem of weeds.
Put it on the ground and dig holes only where you plant plants, weeds will die due to lack of light, which may end all your weed problems in the next few years.
But there were other problems.
A layer of non-permeable plastic sheet on the ground allows the roots and soil microorganisms of the plant to breathe air.
When all the water that falls on the plastic is out of these holes, the roots located in the opening can create a greater breathing problem.
Plastic eventually began to break, which caused a mess. GEOTEXTILES?
The recently launched geotextile is a replacement for solid black plastic cloth.
These are torn-resistant woven or spun plastic fabrics with many small holes that allow air and water to pass through.
Black plastic and geotextile are widely used by farmers, gardeners and gardeners.
If you don't like the way these synthetic films look
Of course, this is the case when they are used for landscaping --you cover them.
Wood chips look natural and are widely used for this purpose.
Anyway, a thin cover is required for the geotextile to block the minimum light passing through the small hole.
But the problem comes again.
Over time, a large number of weeds eventually grow quietly in pieces of wood covered with plastic.
The chip or other covering also slides around over time to expose the plastic or geotextile underneath
Not a beautiful sight!
Also, even if black plastic or geotextile can't work forever, they will stay in the soil for so long, or almost so.
Try the landscape in the future and you will be wrestling, cutting out geotextile, or collecting pieces of black plastic.
Fortunately, it is not often recommended to use plastic "peanuts" in the soil.
According to the reasoning, they should increase ventilation by mixing into the soil.
While they will undoubtedly make the soil lighter and thus look better to inflate, almost all the extra air is locked in peanuts.
It is also recommended to put a layer of plastic peanuts at the bottom of the pot to strengthen the drainage as a layer of gravel has been used.
In this case, like the traditional gravel layer, that layer of peanuts is worse than useless.
In both cases, the effect is to create a "habitat" water level in the jar, making the well depth of the root smalleraerated soil.
In addition, the abandoned potted soil can be laid on the ground or added to the compost pile, but do you want peanuts as well?
The environment-friendly alternating plastic inadvertently enters our soil, from the plant label in the wrong place to the sticker that is now prevalent on the peel of the water, to the old plastic tank.
Deliberately embedding a permanent synthetic blanket on the ground, or mixing plastic peanuts into the soil, will not bring more natural benefits --friendly way.
For example, paper covers can be biodegradable and can prevent weeds in one season.
Pearl Rock or Pearl Rock are two minerals that are more effective in reducing soil pollution than foam plastic peanuts.
It becomes difficult or good to remove the plastic placed on the soil or soilAlmost impossible.
Deliberately putting plastic on the ground is disrespectful to the skinthat is, soil —
It covers our planet and maintains most of our lives here.
