Place this red plastic mulch over planting areas. It warms the soil in preparation for your tomato transplants. Boosts your harvest and performs better than black plastic mulches. Lasts two or more seasons if removed after harvest.
Water does not soak through this plastic thereby leaving large amounts of water in puddles in the garden. The water attracted many mosquitoes and other unwelcomed guests. Tried poking a few holes in the mulch but then had major issues with grass growing beneath.
Worth the money

I used this for the first time last year and was very pleased with the results. I didn't have to water the plants nearly as much because the plastic keeps the moisture in the soil. Much less problems with blight and monster yields. I've never had such heavy stems on the plants. Say goodbye to pulling weeds except a few that find their way up along the plants.
This is how I grow tomatoes from now on.

I used this for the first time last year and had an amazing yield of tomatoes and peppers. It cut weeding to almost nothing. It was definately able to be used a second year except I didn't have a place to store it. I am ordering again this year.

I have used this stuff for three years now, and can't belive how much it improves my yeilds. It makes such a different up here in northern minnesota, without it my tomatoes just don't do well.

We have used this plastic in the past two years. It helps the plants grow and the production of tomatoes was great!
