Great for small gardens! These 8' Flora Flow All-In-One mats come ready to install with pressure regulator and hose end attachment. Simply lay mat out, apply soil to the edges, and plant through the perforated holes. The perforated holes are 6 inches apart but you only need to pull out the ones you want to plant in. The drip tubing places water directly at your plants' root zone for efficient water use. The mulch reduces evaporation from the soil, so you'll need to water less frequently. By warming the soil, the plastic mulch encourages faster plant growth and allows earlier vegetable harvests. Red mulch has show to increase tomato yields up to 20% in research studies.
