No one likes weeds growing up around their waters edge and dock. Clean it up easily with the various products that Marine Blue carries for waterfront weed control. From cutters to mow down the growing weeds, to rakes to clean up the top, and mats to control the growth from ever happening.
Weed Water Mat
No other seaweed mat uses a weighted frame assembled around the perimeter. The frame holds shape even in tall, heavy weeds. The mat won’t “tent up” between weights like other mat products.
How does it work?
This Water Weed Mat creates a weed-free, open water area on your waterfront instantly! The heavy-duty woven poly fabric settles to the bottom, blocks light, and forms a benthic barrier to prevent re-growth. The “picture frame” design holds shape even in heavy weeds. The mat won’t tent up between weights like other mat products. Most weeds are gone completely within 3 to 4 weeks. No chemicals, cutters, or weed trimmings to remove.
How do you install it?
It’s easy… all the weights and connectors you need are included with your purchase so there is no need to buy, transport and cut additional weights. Simply connect the weights using the weight connectors included and insert them into the weight tubes that are a part of the mat itself. Once the weights are in place – you simply slide it into the water. Check with your local jurisdiction to determine whether a shoreline permit is required.
Our Water Weed Mat is just over 16 feet square, that’s over 270 square feet of weed control! We have found that this size allows for easy handling. One person can install and move our mat. Larger sizes can be difficult to handle especially once they have been covered with lake sediment. This size also allows for flexibility in maintaining odd sized spaces.
Sea Weed Systems

Seaweed Mats were invented in 1999. We patented our current mat because we believe this is the best mat available for controlling weed problems in lakes and ponds. This mat is the result of years of trials and errors. Along the way we discovered many things about seaweed mats.
- First we tried sewing the mats and discovered that sewn mats didn’t last very long because the stitching can break. This allows the fabric to come loose and there is no way to repair this. Also, a sewn mat cannot support the stress of the moving.
- A hard framed mat is very difficult to move or turn. It also allows build up of gases. This causes the framed mat to rise up and at times it can even float away.
Our current Seaweed Mats are designed to move easily, the weights are encased within the fabric and then totally enclosed with UV rated PVC. This unique design allows gases to escape which prevents the mats from rising up. Our mats are complete and ready to install. The consumer does not need to provide any additional weights, sandbags, or staking down. Just place the mats and you instantly have a weed free area. The main advantage of our mats is the design. Our mats have weights evenly distributed across the entire width of the fabric. This creates a strong mat that can withstand frequently movement.
The rebar we use is smooth and is custom cut for us at a length of 12’6” (large) and 7’6” (small). Basic large mats weigh 90 lbs. Once it’s at the shoreline a normal person can unroll, then float the mat across the water to desired spot and place it at the bottom.
