What is TreeDiaper®?

If you have ever had to organize care for your plants while traveling, or spent thousands on landscaping just to have part of it die due to under/over watering, then you know the exact frustrations that inspired us. If there was something that could water your indoor plants, hanging baskets, veggie garden, and your trees all by itself, wouldn't you go for it? Well, we've created it, TreeDiaper®!

TreeDiaper® is proudly made in the USA (Ashland, VA). TreeDiaper® is a patented, multi-functional plant protection system. It absorbs rain or irrigation water and slowly releases it back to the plant when the soil dries. It promotes healthy outward root growth that facilitates establishment of newly planted trees and shrubs & enhances the long term health. If you plants get too much water, it will absorb from the soil to prevent root rot. You mulch right over TreeDiaper®, so you don't even see it.

Our Story

Being parents of two, we hate to see disposable diapers go into waste and pile up in landfills. As polymer scientists and engineers, we know how precious the materials used in disposable diapers are. We started Zynnovation LLC to develop novel technologies and give a second life to disposable diapers. We have created and validated a multifunctional plant protection mat, trademarked as TreeDiaper® and SteadySpring®.

TreeDiaper® technology are patented in the United States (US Pat #: 9,565,809, 10,178,834 and 10,624,276) and Israel while pending in a number of other countries around the world.

TreeDiaper® TD48 Round (for plants of ~24" rootball) - Model#1048vA

Proudly Made in the USA

This TreeDiaper® TD48 Advanced Hydration System mat is great for 4 inch caliper trees. Consider 3 years of growth prior to the tree's establishment. For trees larger than 4" caliper, use more than one unit for each tree. We recommend cover a circle area that is twice of the diameter of the rootball. Simply soak the mat in water to get it started, then place it around your plants. Its user friendly circular shape consisting of four quarters is designed to be placed on top of various types of soil. If you prefer a natural look, just add mulch on top of the mat. Because the TreeDiaper® treemat is made from durable materials, it can be used for years!
