To determine the best size of COCODISC® for use in containers, please measure the inner pot diameter at the soil/mix level. The COCODISC® should be placed right on top of the soil/mix.
CNLA (Canadian Nursery Landscape Association) studied the effectiveness of hand weeding, herbicide and seven different weed barriers on dwarf Alberta spruce in 1 gallon pots. The barriers were applied in July 2003, and were evaluated periodically for the next two seasons. They found the COCODISC® to be the most effective weed control alternative - even more effective than herbicide!

Comments from Satisfied Customers


...We are very pleased with the first year results....

...These discs are not blowing out of containers like the previous discs were....

...The distribution of water is superior....

...Our hand weeding is reduced by over 90%....

...Not only have we been able to reduce the amount of water needed to maintain and grow crops using the coco discs, we have also saved labor and time in our fertilizing applications methods as well as weed control....

...The coco disc allows us to apply them and forget it until sales. Great product....

...we have peace of mind as we do not need to worry about weeds any longer....

...these discs help keep our weeding costs down....

...We have now used them for several years in our container production and are very happy with the results....

...They also slow the evaporation of moisture by approximately 35%....We also sell the 50-60cm size to people wanting an affordable, biodegradable weed barrier when planting individual trees or tree lines....

...I like the fact that the discs allow air and irrigation water to easily penetrate the discs while suppressing weed germination....plants displayed with the coco discs have more of an "added on value" because of the discs neat appearance....

...I have calculated that the coco discs have not only paid for themselves, but have also reduced our operation cost above and beyond the price of the coco discs, thus saving us money, labor and time....
