When compared to their wood counterparts, fabric raised beds are easier to assemble, more affordable, and with less risk of rot, mold, or pest infestation. But if the growing conditions aren’t quite right, traditional fabric growing containers pose their own challenges. Traditional fabric beds drain and dry from all sides. This can cause uneven drainage and dry pockets. It may also require more frequent watering. Grassroots offers an innovative approach to fabric beds that not only improves drainage and aeration, but also supports the soil food web so that plants can grow to their fullest potential. Grassroots Living Soil Fabric Beds feature a waterproof liner and bottom aeration strip. This fosters the optimal environment to cultivate microbes essential for living soil, and creates healthier, more productive plants.
Unlike other fabric beds on the market, Grassroots fabric beds are reinforced with PVC pipe for durability that matches that of wooden raised beds. Plus, you can choose to add a trellis to your Grassroots fabric bed with PVC trellis fittings.
**Raised beds include fabric and fittings with no PVC pipe.

Benefits of Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds
Reduced Water & Energy Use
By preventing drainage and drying from all sides of the container, Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds lengthen the wet-to-dry soil cycle. That means less water usage and lower humidity indoors.
Even Moisture + Drainage
Traditional fabric containers drain from all sides, which can cause dry pockets. Our Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds direct water downward, ensuring even distribution throughout.
The 4” aeration strip prevents roots from circling the bottom of the container by allowing air to circulate from below. Our Living Soil Fabric Pots & Beds also encourage soil to dry from the top down, mimicking the way soil dries in nature.
