ROADSIDES AND SHORELINES
It is sometimes difficult to find a covering that will stay in place on e.g. steep road slopes and ramps. The covering is either flushed away by rain or scattered by strong winds. PLANTEX GOLD is the best solution to this problem. It does not need to be covered. At the same time, the erosion caused by rain and air effects is reduced. PLANTEX GOLD can also be used to line the shores of ponds, lakes, and directed waterways. It will not affect the water quality! No organic components will be dissolved into the water that could cause algae to grow. It can also be used to protect the rubber lining of a pond, in which case it is installed below and above the rubber liner.
PLANTEX GOLD has no effect on soil, air, or water quality. It presents no harm to people, animals, or any other living organisms.
