When you take it up to store it does it ROLL UP without creasing or do you need to fold it please ?

I like to keep things as long as possible and Im concerned that if I have to fold it which will create CREASES will this cause CRACKS

I emailed groundcoversolutions but they did not really answer that question

Many thanks you two

One thing I noticed was about 1 hour after I had added some to my raised bed I saw that spiders had already made some horizontal web lines across the bed

The sun was reflecting off them and I could see a tiny tiny white spider hard at work

IM just asking a blacksmith to make me a 4 x 3 foot grid to go over a pond I will dig on my allotment

SS is £388 and GS £255
