These sturdy reed mats are made of unpeeled freshwater reeds. The reeds are approx. 8 to 12 mm wide and tied together with iron wire per stem.
The extra-thick reed mats provide a warm appearance and create privacy on your veranda or balcony. As a temporary solution, the reed mat is very suitable due to its relatively low price. Reed mats can be used in many ways and are mainly used as covering against existing fences, wire fences or on balconies and balustrades. Reed mats are also ideal for growing climbing plants against it.
Keep in mind that this reed mat is not sight-proof. If you want a bit more privacy, we recommend double fixing the mats for optimal density.
The lifespan of a reed mat is on average 2 to 8 years, depending on where you place it and the weather conditions.

With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
