“Robert, Your poly film was extremely easy to place on a raised bed with my mulch layer and as you described the film, with heat from the sun, it shrank and was hugging the raised bed the entire growing season. What’s more, it never billowed during the growing season compared to other non-degradable plastic mulch products. The pumpkin plants growing on the film were very vigorous and produced many pumpkins."
