Answers to your questions

What makes LITE-SOIL unique?

LITE-SOILproducts are strips (LITE-STRIPS) and nets (LITE-NET) cut from thick water storage nowovens or drainage mats. They consist of environmentally friendly, high-strength and rot-proof geotextiles/nonwovens made of sustainable polypropylene or biodegradable source materials such as wood fibre fleece or PLA. The fine-fibered water storage nonwoven consists of up to approx. 90% open, interconnected air voids. Thus, on the one hand, they can drain air and water very well, and additionally serve as a water nonwoven. Thus, the textile water storage & underground irrigation systems are perfect for watering any type of plants.

How much water can LITE-SOIL products store?

LITE-SOILproducts consist of up to 90% open pores and only about 10-15% of solid material. Depending on the thickness of the nonwoven, up to 10 l/m² of water is stored in the pores. When pulling apart a LITE-NET– e.g. to 3 times the area – the storage volume is then distributed accordingly.

Can water be saved by using LITE-SOIL products?

Yes. The fact that LITE-SOILproducts quickly channel water into the subsoil and distribute it over a large area underground, significantly less water evaporates on the surface.

What degradable products are there?

LITE-SOIL products can be made of either highly durable polypropylene fibres or biodegradable natural fibres, depending on your needs. Bio1stands for 1-2 years,Bio5stands for 5-10 years.

Which product is suitable for permanent use?

The polypropylene version has a permanent effect in the soil. If at some point it is desired to separate LITE-STRIPS from soil, this can easily be done by using a coarse sieve. The LITE-NET can simply be pulled out of the ground again.
