Guardian mulch film helps enhance the efficient use of such resources as pesticides, nutrients, water and heat. It also helps control weeds and encourages the development of plants and fruits. This film may be embossed to allow the plastic to lie tighter on the planting beds, or perforated for venting or planting. We offer a complete line of plastic mulches in one or two colors in widths up to 90 inches.
Low Tunnels or Micro Tunnels
Guardian micro tunnels help create a greenhouse environment that protects crops from low temperatures during cold months, when they are most vulnerable. They also help protect against insects and birds, and are used to produce early harvests and increase crop yield. Available clear or pigmented, with or without holes. Infrared (IR) additives to increase heat retention also are available on request.
An alternative or enhancement to chemical applications, soil solarization film helps control pests, diseases and weeds. High temperatures obtained beneath Guardian solarization film can kill fungi, nematodes, and many weed seeds and soil insects. This film is available with infrared (IR) and anti-fog additives, as needed.
These versatile films incorporate additives and stabilizers to provide longer film life and to meet specific growing needs, such as anti-fog, anti-drip, infrared (IR) enhancement, UV durability and more. Guardian manufactures greenhouse film in widths up to 28 feet. Thicknesses vary according to additives, desired properties and the predominant weather conditions in the area of use.
Also called “hoop houses,” these unheated greenhouse structures are well-documented for producing early harvests, protecting crops from moisture, improving quality and extending the harvest season. Relatively inexpensive and easy to construct, they also can help deliver rapid return on investment. Available up to 28 feet wide.
