Wrekin will demonstrate its weed and regrowth controls which will include a new larger-size CellTrack grass protection system, intended helps contractors reduce installation time and costs while providing better stability and aesthetics by reducing the number of joints required.

Designed to be quick and easy to install, the new DrivePave gravel paving range are each 1200 x 800mm and 30mm deep, and contain an integral layer on non-woven geotextile.

And its ProtectaWeb Tree Root Protection System is a simple, no-dig system combining a specially engineered geocell and geotextiles to enable development with damaging existing trees.#

Divisional director for geosynthetics Roy Partington said: "Our development is focussed on the most up-to-date products to bring real value to customers where it counts – simple specification, easy installation and long-term performance."

Wrekin will also have demonstration areas for some of its most popular geogrids for forestry access roads.

Meanwhile Nomix Enviro will be showing its range of weed control solutions at the show, offering practical demonstrations of its Nomix Total Droplet Control (TDC) system, a unique, highly effective targeted low-volume herbicide application system ideal for tree bases; Ecoplug Max, a safe and effective alternative for managing cut stump re-growth; and Nomix Stem Master, a stem injection herbicide applicator for invasive plants including Japanese knotweed and Buddleia.

The 2016 APF Exhibition takes place at Ragley Hall Estate, Alcester, Warwickshire on 15-17 September.
