This is a wonderful product! I have purchased it in the past and it is so much easier than loading rocks into pots! Saves on soil needs as well!

Beats the HELL out of landscape fabric and heavy, messy rocks in the bottom of your pots!! This stuff is great.

Works great, I use this in all of our pots and planters (indoor and outdoor). Keeps the pots lighter and allows the water to drain better. Great stuff.
Easy installation for light pots!

I had 3 pots of varying sizes and one large urn to fill so I ordered the large roll Better Than Rocks! Measuring and cutting the green fiber material was really easy! As pictured on the website I put in 2 layered in each pot and three in the large urn! I have oodles left over to use in years to come. I used so much less soil and the ceramic pots were so easy to move to our screened in porch. The urn was still heavy due to its size, but still I could actually pick it up myself! My husband was impressed. The plants are doing well. They do not seem to mind at all that soil is shallower than usual! I definitely like how I can easily move the pots around. I was impressed that I could now move the urn off the front porch when it rains so it gets the benefit of rain water easily. I am impressed! I'm really like this product. Time will tell whether the plants will do well for the season and how easily the pots are to clean in the fall!
Super drainage, easy to use

I used three packages of Better Than Rocks to line the bottoms of four extra-large planters on my deck. The material was easy to cut and fit. I used three layers in each pot and was glad for the amount of potting soil saved and for not having to deal with heavy rocks. My pots drain efficiently, and I'm very pleased with my purchase. Worth the expense.

Better Than 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. more Their Story
