Weed Barrier

KODIAKOTTON® liners serve as great weed barriers. In flower beds, the natural fiber pads can be laid down as a barrier for weeds. Water and fertilizer can drain through the pad but weeds cannot come through. 

If you reuse our liners in any way, post it to Facebook and tag @KODIAKOOLER1 !

  1. I was sort of happy to get my last refrigerated shipment packed with Kodiakotton. I would love to use this a weed barrier in my garden. Except I have no idea what’s in it, so even if it is biodegradable, I don’t know if it is safe for my garden. Is it just cotton or does it include some biodegradable plastic fluff? Would you use it around your pole beans at home, or just around an odd azalea in front of your business? Please publish the materials used and not used in this packaging, so I know if I can use it as suggested.

  2. I am concerned if there are any chemicals added to the cotton that could wash into the soil or be taken up by plants

    1. Yes! On our recycle page, we have a couple more videos with ideas like a pet bed and grocery bag insulation (https://kodiakooler.com/recycle/), but we have seen people use them in so many more ways! Purse stuffers (to help keep their shape), beekeeping, cushioning household items in moving boxes…the list goes on!

  3. I just received a shipment using Kodiakotton and I may consider using it in my garden. I only grow vegetables, for consumption by my family. It would fit nicely around my tomato plants, which would then absorb the material as it degrades. I read your reply that it’s not carcinogenic, which is only a small comfort. Basically, the real question is, “Can I eat it?”

    1. Hi Janet, great to hear that you’re planning to reuse KODIAKOTTON! Our liners work so well in a home garden. While cotton, in its raw form, is not meant for human consumption, it works beautifully in a vegetable garden; giving plants more protein and nutrients to grow and thrive. In other words, our cotton liners, as they biodegrade, will not add anything to the soil of your vegetable plants that would be harmful to humans. Happy gardening! And feel free to send pictures to info@kodiakooler.com – we’d love to see our liners in your garden!
