Materials
  • 100% British wool
  • A polyol made from ethically sourced natural and renewable products
  • An innovative custom polymer designed and made exclusively by NexGen
Durability
  • Long-term resistance to water and premature microbial degradation
  • Starts to break down after five years, depending on location, tree canopy, soil type and microbe content
  • Pollution-free guarantee
  • 5-year useful lifetime warranty
Degradability
  • Biodegradable and environmental degradation
    • Breaks down by microbial (fungal, algae, mosses and other soil organisms) and environmental degradation (UV, rain, ice and wind)

Because we make our vole guards from biodegradable materials, they can vary in colour over time. These variations help the guards blend naturally into the countryside and do not affect how they perform.
