Helps with the weight

Sure saves me on dirt & on my back. Pots are now manageable in weight. Great idea.
Use in all my pots!

I have bought this three times now. Material lasts and can be reused when repotting. I like that it keeps the soil from running out the drain holes (and leaving dirt stains underneath). Have noticed that plant roots may grow through the porous material if used in smaller pots,, but not an issue. It is a bit expensive, but worth it,
Worked great in our Pots

Piece of Junk !

This stuff does NOT drain. After 3 weeks, I dug up my 40" planter to discover this 'mesh' was completely water-logged while the soil had been bone dry throughout. No water had dripped out the planter's drain holes. My plants suffered and I realized I had just spent $42 for nothing. One star minimum required to leave a review here …
Super easy

I used it in a flagstone planter attached to the front porch. Removed current old dirt and tar paper witch had been used for years. Tar paper is not suitable. I'm waiting for this very rainy weather to pass in order to finish the project.

Planter Drainage Material - Jumbo

Material for more effective weight ventilation and drainage in plants.

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
