Bulk bags are a popular choice in a variety of industries due to their durability, affordability and versatility. They are a highly popular packaging solution for construction, mining and agricultural companies that deal with bulk quantities of materials. The landscaping sector is no different; bulk bags are an ideal option for shipping and storing landscaping materials.

These bags, also known as flexible intermediate bulk containers (FIBCs), can store and transport vast amounts of landscaping materials like pebbles, sand, gravel, and other agricultural items.

Custom Bulk Bags is a leading manufacturer and supplier of FIBCs in South Africa. We produce up to 3.5 million bulk bags per year – all of which have a minimum safety factor rating of 5:1. Our products can safely hold between 500kg and two tonnes of material per bag, depending on your specifications.

Why landscaping companies should opt for bulk bags

Bulk bags come in a variety of sizes and shapes. They have one to four loops and are constructed from woven tapes of polypropylene that creates a strong and durable fabric. This material is resistant to chemicals and moisture. Furthermore, these bags can survive in adverse weather conditions and be reused multiple times.

Bulk bags are extensively used in the construction sector to transport cement, sand and gravel. Farmers store and transport animal feed, fertiliser and other crop inputs in FIBCs. Bulk bags are also used in the mining, food and chemical industries because of their safety and effectiveness in handling hazardous chemicals.

The landscaping sector will benefit from the same qualities that make FIBCs a reliable and affordable choice. Landscapers can move soil, gravel, rocks, manure and various other materials in a safe and efficient manner with FIBCs. In addition, landscapers must transfer these materials around the work area, which is where bulk bags come in handy.

They are reusable and ideal for storing on-site waste during the landscaping process. Bulk bags are collapsible and may be readily stored when not in use, as opposed to typical hessian bags, which take up room even when empty. In addition, bulk bags are a sustainable product due to their reusability and recyclability.
