container liners


I have used this product for several years as a liner for large planting containers. It is a nice filler so it cuts down on the amount of potting soil to use. It also provides excellent drainage.More > < Less


Very useful tool




Love this


I have been using cut up pool noodles in my pots to take up space but this product works so much better. I love it and it is easy to use.


Best potting invention


I am SO pleased with the purchase of Better Than Rocks. This product is practical, convenient and best of all ~ reusable! My window box plantinganting seems to be doing great with the Better Than Rocks. I even tried it in a repotting of my houseplant. I used the small pieces and corners left over from pots. I have plenty left from the generous roll.More > < Less


planter drainage material


I wanted to try this in the large pots I had outside, but got carried away with the indoor plants instead. I purchased because I was tired of rocks falling out of my pots. I like working with it and will buy more for my other pots.More > < Less

About Better Than Rocks

This gardener's tool rocks

Container gardens are magical. Whether they’re made up of colorful flowers or stunning foliage, they can turn an ordinary rooftop into an urban paradise, or transform a bare front porch into an inviting retreat. Smart gardeners know that the key to keeping plants healthy is good drainage. Traditionally this means lining the bottom of planters with rocks, which makes the containers heavy and unwieldy and can quickly turn a green thumb into a pain in the back.

Enter John and Sarah Hoggatt, who discovered that the recycled plastic mesh John’s brother-in-law patented as a building material could double as lightweight, eco-friendly drainage at the bottom of a flower pot. Better Than Rocks works just like rocks do, allowing water to flow freely, yet trapping needed moisture inside the pot. Presto! Pots are pounds lighter, making it easy to rotate them according to your plants’ sunshine needs. The result: a lush, long lasting garden you can enjoy all summer long and no more back pain. As a bonus, Better Than Rocks is also conveniently reusable. Simply shake out, hose off, and you’re ready for the next planting.
