Pine Needles and Gutter Guards
Pine needles are highly acidic, ever noticed there’s often no other plants growing at the base of your pine trees? Once the needles drop, they decompose and release toxins into the soil that make it almost impossible for any other fauna to flourish. On a positive note, if your gutters get blocked with pine needles, there’s unlikely to be much weed growth inside the gutter.
SO WHICH GUTTER GUARDS FOR PINE NEEDLES
Both our Triple-G and ScrewTight Ember Guard systems will be highly effective at keeping pine needles out. The original inventors of the mesh that we now call “Triple-G,” we’re serious about developing the very best gutter protection for Australia. During that extensive innovation process, pine needles were a primary consideration.
Our finest grade mesh is ember guard, it's available in alluminium or steel. For more info about ember guard see this webpage.
