Lumite® is by far our most popular and best-selling weed barrier. Why? Well, not only does it work well in landscaping under rocks and gravel, but it does a fantastic job of accelerating growth in fruit and tree plantings.

Lumite Weed Barrier is an easy, economical way to control weeds and conserve soil moisture in tree, shrub, or fruit, or vegetable plantings.

  1. Lumite is a water-permeable fabric that allows moisture to penetrate through to the ground, but not evaporate back out.
  2. Lumite eliminates the need for cultivation, drip systems, weed badger work, chemicals, or other tree-planting-maintenance aids on most plantings.
  3. Lumite is a strong, durable, time-tested, polypropylene geotextile woven fabric that carries a five-year guarantee against ultraviolet deterioration.
  4. Lumite has been used in arid regions of the United States and overseas to enhance survival and growth on tree and shrub plantings. Survival rate is usually above 95% as compared to 50% or less without Lumite. Growth rates double compared to nearby plantings without weed barrier.
  5. In a Wyoming experiment, soil moisture was measured for two years under fabric and in nearby unprotected cultivation plots. Results indicate that soil moisture under fabric did not fall below 80% of field capacity while soil moisture dropped to nearly 3% under unprotected cultivation plots.
