U-TECK’s WeedEnder® Proves Durability in New York after Superstorm Sandy
Manufacturer to demonstrate vegetation control matting at annual NYSATE Conference, May 8-10
A total vegetation control matting solution, WeedEnder was installed under cable barriers along the Long Island Expressway in the spring of 2012 to help minimize potentially hazardous roadside maintenance – such as mowing and herbicide spraying – and to prevent erosion that can cause structure trenching. Despite the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy in October 2012, this installation of WeedEnder remains intact, and continues to provide the area with a viable means of vegetation management and erosion control.
Russ Mason III, U-TECK’s vice president of sales said, “Our WeedEnder products are guaranteed to last a minimum of 15 years, and require little to no maintenance. The fact that this installation of WeedEnder in Long Island withstood one of the most destructive storms in history further proves the product’s longevity and demonstrates its ability to serve as a long-term solution for weed control.”
U-TECK will be exhibiting WeedEnder at booth 60 during the 73rd Annual New York State Association of Transportation Engineers (NYSATE) Conference. The conference will be held May 8-10, 2013, at the Rochester Hyatt Regency in Rochester, N.Y. For more information, visit www.nysate.org/

Developed by U-TECK, WeedEnder® is a total vegetation control matting comprised of 100 percent post-consumer recycled materials. WeedEnder dramatically increases visibility within installed zones and enables easier maintenance under guardrails, cable barriers, road signs and beautification sites. The fabric’s patented construction provides for vegetation control without using dangerous herbicides. Instead, WeedEnder is a cost-effective, environmentally safe product that controls unwanted vegetation by depriving the root system of sunlight while allowing water and nutrients to filter through, keeping the root system alive and preventing erosion. U-TECK also offers a line of WeedEnder products for the home, including Weedless Garden Kits, available from Simple Gardening by U-TECK.
