Plastic mulch is flexible and stretchable so it will conform to both flat and raised beds. The black mulch
increases soil temperatures at depths of 2 to 6 inches, warming the roots which results in your plants growing faster. Since there is no light coming through under the black mulch the weeds can't grow. This durable plastic mulch also works well with all crop varieties and can if carefull be double cropped in one season.
Plastic mulch is extruded from clear polyethylene resin into sheets of film of varying widths and lengths. In its natural state, plastic is clear, so carbon black is added to make it black. Generally, the thickness is 1.0 to 1.1 mil (1 mil = 1/1000 inch) although thinner materials are available in high density polyethylene. Because of the inherent physical properties of black plastic mulch, it modifies the micro-climate around plants; enhancing growth, yield, and quality of horticultural crops. Over many years of experimentation, and use since the late 1950's, black plastic has proved to be a boost to agricultural productivity.
