Exactly what I expected in a size that was good for me. Used for a new lawn from seed. Superior to straw, in my opinion.

Great Product!!

wrote ():

I used the germination blanket late in October to start grass seed. The product rolled out nicely and was easy to cut with a pair of scissors like cutting wrapping paper. Just slid the scissors along and it went right through it. My grass grew great and has come in very thick. I have removed the blanket to reuse again later. Thanks!!

solid quality

The remay fabric performed as advertised. It has held up well in the weather and should provide opportunities for re-use. As with everything I have bought from AML, the company has consistently vetted their products for quality. When something falls short, they address it with speed and real customer care so that they make it right. I found the steel-strapped spade I bought from them some 30 years ago has held up despite years of heavy use. High praise for their quality and integrity.

Germination and Insect blanket

This was a great product and we will buy it again! We had tried similar products from other vendors, and were disappointed. This worked perfect. We used it not only to protect our arugula and kale crops from flea beetles, but also as a frost cover, coupled with plastic hoops to extend out season for spinach, lettuce, and leeks. It was terrific! We have enough to begin early crops in spring, and we're pretty confident that with the blanket we will get early broccoli raab instead of feeding the flea beetles! Love this product!

I am a Champaign County Master Gardener. I like this product. Am using it to extend fall vegetable crops. I doubled the cloth and anchored it over my spinach and lettuce raised beds. Harvested both spinach and lettuce Dec.8,2011. Temp here has gotten down to 11 degrees the past week. Some of the gardeners in our Market Street Community Gardens have also purchased this product and are having success with extending fall crops.

Bugs Bugs and more Bugs

I moved from the fertile ground of Montana to the red clay mountains of North Carolina in October of 2010.The season started much earlier in NC as soon as the temps went up, the pests arrived, especially flea beetles, potato beetles, Mexican Bean beetles and numerous other pests. I sell my product to restaurants, so appearance is imperative. The insect blanket saved my crops from being completely devoured by the bugs, and also extended my growing season when the temps dropped. A versatile, long lasting product. Very happy and will be purchasing a large quantity in the Spring!

Great for seed establishment

wrote ():

I've used this several times over the past years as a blanket to speed grass seed germination late in the season. Works great to keep in some heat but let lots of light through--and water. Helps to keep seed from moving around.

I beat the squash borer this year!

wrote ():

I used the row cover fabric at the suggestion of our county agent and she was spot on. This year we got three full pickings from our zucchini plantings by starting the seeds indoors and we set out plants covered by the row cover fabric supported by pvc pipe hoops. A great product that stood up to the elements so well I will re-use most of what I put out again next growing season.
