Grow your own floor terramac®, which is made from polylactic acid derived from plants, is a biodegradable fiber that returns to the soil. its conformational material integrates with nature ans is environmentally-friendly. the carbon it contains within has been captured from the air by plants through the process of photosynthesis, and does not increase CO2 in the atmosphere even when incinerated.
terramac® is in use as an eco-matierial spread on the sloping sides of embankments before seeding. it encourages the growth of the seeds as they emerge. several types of moss are carefully placed on the fiber, which gently adapts to both bulky areas and sparse areas. the result is a planter that makes the best use of the fiber. the holes and projections function as receptacles for plant roots.
