GardenWool® delivers sustainable and renewable warmth, protection and nutritional abundance to your gardens – along with natural weed and pest control – to promote plant growth, year round. Whether you have traditional gardens, balcony planters or acres of arable land, make your contribution towards ecological balance with GardenWool® products, and contribute towards healthy, ecological gardening!
GardenWool® is one of Austria’s contributions towards healthy nutrition and a healthier environment but without the use of agricultural chemicals. Environmentally friendly and non-toxic, GardenWool® is made from pure sheep’s wool and is ideal for ecologically-savvy gardeners in all seasons, particularly for growing fruits and vegetables.
The sheep’s wool used in GardenWool® grows on Austrian sheep and those in neighbouring countries across Europe, and is naturally sustainable. The manufacturing of GardenWool® is a simple 3 step process consisting of the shearing, cleaning and processing into fleece mats – with the most humane handling of animals, and using a minimum amount of energy.
GardenWool® is available in various formats as disks, mats and tufts, and provides the following benefits:
GardenWool® mats effectively prevent weed growth, without the use of toxic chemicals or messy wood mulch.
GardenWool® products are able to store up to an astounding 33% of their weight in water! They slowly release water back into the soil again to keep your plants hydrated, regulating the water balance, resulting in less frequent watering.
GardenWool® creates excellent plant-preferred environments, releasing nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium for optimizing plant growth. Depending on the thickness of the mat and its contact with organic material, flower beds, vegetable gardens and planters lined with GardenWool® will take 2-4 years until they are completely, biologically decomposed.
Effectively stop slug infestation, without the use of any harsh chemicals! GardenWool’s® curly wool strips literally stop snails and slugs in their tracks, in a totally natural, environmentally friendly way. Snails avoid sheep’s wool, since they have to produce a lot of slime to break through them and run the risk of drying out.
Winterize your plants and protect shrubs, trees and potted plants with naturally heat-insulating GardenWool®, vital for harsh Canadian climates.
GardenWool® is non-toxic and safe for gardeners young and old, while being low in carbon dioxide, as well as being energy-saving. GardenWool® is also available in various thickness bedding mats for dogs and cats. Being in harmony with nature, GardenWool® is versatile in its applications: around tree trunks and arbours, as well as planters and raised garden beds.
GardenWool® is available in convenient sizes and 5 formats from mulch discs, to sheep’s wool tufts, fertilizer flakes and wool pellets. These specialty garden mats facilitate earlier seeding and also increase the usability of soft leaf vegetables such as lettuce, since the lower leaves will not contact the soil, and therefore will not rot.
