Burlap Bag PlantersUsing burlap bags as planters instead of expensive wine barrels or buckets is the way to go!
Needing only a small piece of wire mesh and a burlap bag, it's both simple and inexpensive to make. The nature of the bag allows the earth to "breathe" and it cannot be overwatered.
Rest the finished planter on a wooden pallet or cinder block to allow the bag some air.
Hillside Restoration and LandscapingTurning this previously unusable hill into a place where a garden can grow. Instead of using a polypropelyn blended or plastic based fabric that will end up in the earth for the next 20 years, burlap is a great alternative. The burlap bags can be filled with a soil and stone/rock mixture to create that raised bed border that can still take plants. The benefit of using burlap is that it's a natural material that will hold up for enough time to let the restoration take root but then decompose into the ground.
Thank you very much to Kaisha Eltrich for sharing her great work on this project.
Upcycled ProductsUpcycling burlap to create accessories and products is both environmentally and socially responsible. Not to mention the cost of material is low because it's a recycled material.
We have a significant number of very pretty burlap bags which can be reused for this purpose. The artwork and quality of the bags are retained and we set these special bags aside primarily for this purpose. We have several different art bags available for your unique projects. Contact us and we'll shoot you images of our current selection of bags.
