There were previously multiple options for weed control around new trees or other plants, none of them very good. Herbicide could be sprayed at the base of the plant to kills weeds, but for most plants (unless glyphosate resistant) this could cause as much harm to desired plant as undesirable weeds. Organic mulch could be used, but as this breaks down it forms a good soil into which weeds can grow. Fabric can be used , but this tends to slowly puncture and weeds will find their way through it. Recently, rubber mats have become popular, but these also keep rain from trickling down to the desired plants roots.
As none of these options were previously very good, something else needed to be found. Enter the Groasis Waterboxx PlantCocoon, or Waterboxx for short. The Waterboxx was not invented as weed control - not at all. The Waterboxx was invented as a self refilling water battery for trees and other plants. filling up from dew and rainwater. This water is then channeled to the root of the growing plant. All of this happens naturally (without electricity) due to the ingenious design of the Waterboxx.
|A giant sequoia growing over two years with the Waterboxx in Indiana - no weed pulling or external watering was every needed for this tree, even after the Waterboxx was removed.|
