    Safe for the Environment & Safe for YOU  
   

Environmental hazards of erosion and poisonous run-offs are obstacles that face the roadside maintenance industry every day. In the past it has been difficult to control unwanted vegetation without harming the environment – until now.

U-TECK's WeedEnder products are an environmentally friendly, 100% recycled fiber material. This mat material deprives vegetation of sunlight while allowing water and nutrients to easily pass through to maintain the root system around the mat, minimizing erosion, while controlling growth where it is needed without potentially dangerous herbicides.
