How is this Fabric Typically Used?

Planter bottom fabric is designed to provide a separation layer between the dirt in your planter and the ground below. The fabric is installed after the planter liner is installed.

Step 1: Build the Planter


Step 2: Install the Planter Liner


Planter liner is essential in keeping the moisture from the soil away from the wood sides and bottom of the planter. The moisture from the soil can lead to rot and prematurely degrade the planter. Planter liner helps the planter avoid rotting and can extend the life of your planter significantly.

Step 3: Install the Fabric


Install the planter bottom fabric either on the bottom or the bottom and sides of the planter. The fabric does not necessarily need to be physically attached to the planter.

Step 4: Add Soil and Plantings


Does This Fabric Drain Water?

Most drainage fabrics on the market claim to be permeable with a high water flow rate. Specification sheets show flow rate but it can be difficult to translate the testing numbers into a real world example.
