Species Sedum
 
 
 

Enviromat sedum matting is a very effective low-maintenance ground cover for dry, sunny areas. It can be installed onto banks and low-traffic areas for instant visual effect.

Harrowden's sedum ground mat kits contain everything required to create ornamental ground cover which flowers from April until the end of October. It is a very low-maintenance alternative to a grass lawn. The foliage of the sedum ground mat kit is evergreen, beautifully textured and full of interest all year round.

Applications

  • As an alternative to a grass lawn
  • Slopes and banks
  • Pond surrounds
  • Rock gardens
  • Wildlife-friendly gardens
  • Low-maintenance areas

Sedum plants

Sedums are succulent plants, so-called because of their thick fleshy leaves; they are sometimes known as stonecrops. They are very drought-tolerant and provided they are planted in full sun or light shade, and are not in boggy conditions, sedums provide good all-year-round ground cover.

Plant species in sedum ground mats

Species and proportions may vary depending on availability of seed through the seasons. Not all species listed will appear in every piece of sedum ground matting.

  • White stonecrop (S.album)
  • Gold sedum (S.kamtschaticum)
  • Widow's cross (S.pulchellum)
  • Crooked yellow stonecrop (S.reflexum)
  • Two-row stonecrop (S.spurium)
  • Tasteless stonecrop (S.sexangulare)
  • Biting stonecrop (S.acre)
  • Meadow saxifrage (Saxifragia granulata)

Sedum mat

Enviromat sedum mat is a mixture of seven different sedum species grown on to a special matting system that makes it easy to introduce lots of plants into a garden in a very short time (it unrolls like a carpet). When properly installed, it can allow plants to survive where there is no soil.

Enviromat contains as much of Harrowden's special free-draining growing medium as the plants will ever need. It can be installed on to concrete, used to hide a man-hole cover, put around a water-feature to hide the edges of the pond liner, or even slotted between paving slabs to improve a patio.

Kit contains

  • Sedum ground mat: mats are self-contained and consist of a coir carrier backing, growing medium and mature plants.
  • Plantex weed control fabric: enough to cover the area.

Easy-maintenance ground cover

Enviromat sedum matting will never need mowing pruning or deadheading. It only needs one feed a year (a very easy-to-apply granular sedum feed) and provided it’s installed properly, there should be very little need for watering or weeding.

Enviromat can be walked on, but not too often. When using Enviromat as an alternative to a grass lawn Harrowden recommends putting in stepping stones or paths for access without damaging the sedum plants.
