GardenSoxx®

For Everyone & Commercial Growers

Almost anything! Over 150 varieties of fruits & vegetables and over 35 herb varieties along with countless flowers have successfully been planted with GardenSoxx®. Popular plants grown in GardenSoxx® include strawberries, tomatoes, basil, lettuce, peppers and so much more!

The GardenSoxx mesh is made from grade 5 recyclable polypropylene. This material is food-safe and approved for organic growing. It is also highly durable, allowing it to be used for several growing seasons and can be recycled afterward.

Many products used in organic agriculture are made of HDPE/LDPE and PP. Drip irrigation which is in direct contact with your soil and sometimes touching the stem of the plant is made of plastic. Plastic mulch, which covers the soil is a film used in organic agriculture.

Although we do have customers who grow organically with the GardenSoxx®, we highly suggest contacting your local certifier to get full confirmation from them.

Polypropylene doesn’t leach to the soil or water. The products that do leach and that need to be addressed and regulated are the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Those harmful products are what leach and contaminate our waters and create uncontrollable algae bloom.

With GardenSoxx®, you don't need to use any harmful products such as herbicides or fertilizers.

The presence of weeds will depend on the quality of your compost and/or soil. High quality compost should not have any weed seeds hence when used with GardenSoxx® your crop will be weed-free.

For everyone or any garden enthusiast we recommend the GardenSoxx® Kit which includes the GardenSoxx® mesh, drip irrigation tape, various connectors and pressure regulators and the EZ Filler™ to facilitate the filling of the GardenSoxx®.

For commercial growers, we offer the GardenSoxx® mesh in rolls of different lengths that vary from 100ft to 500ft depending on the mesh size to accommodate projects of any size. Contact us for more details.

Simply cut a hole in the mesh large enough to plant your plug or seeds, using scissors or a knife. A 2” hole or smaller is recommended. Follow planting depths according to your plants, cover the seed or plug with the compost inside the sock, and water as usual.

One cubic yard of High Quality Organic Soil or Compost will fill approximately 60 feet of a GardenSoxx® 8’’ mesh (the mesh is 8" in diameter). The finished linear footage may vary, depending on the number of cuts/sections you make, as each cut requires a tie-off that uses up some of your length. We recommend using zip ties instead of knots to maximize the finished length.

Watering is very easy and water efficient with GardenSoxx®. Simply attach your garden hose to your Kit and briefly water for the following durations:

For the 4x4 GardenSoxx Kit - watering 3x a day for a duration of 3-5 minutes per watering.

For the 4x8 GardenSoxx Kit - watering 3x a day for a duration of 3-5 minutes per watering.

Depending on your area and climate, whether it is extremely dry or humid, you may want to adjust your watering times for a little more or a little less time.

GardenSoxx® is incredibly efficient when it comes to water usage.

For those who enjoy using timers, we suggest to test the water output and time it takes to saturate your growing medium for optimum results.

Additional Details:

Because of its innovative mesh system, GardenSoxx® are nearly impossible to overwater because of their ability to drain excess water. For a 16 sq. ft. GardenSoxx® garden (8 GardenSoxx®) we recommend two 2-gallon watering cans every day. Or, use .5 gallons per GardenSoxx®, per day.

We also recommend using the drip irrigation that is included with your GardenSoxx® kit for the highest water efficiency, which allows you to water less. Our Drip Kits come with all the fittings needed to quickly install the drip tape in your GardenSoxx® Garden. Hook up the system to your hose and you are ready to water your plants. Using the drip system will ultimately water your plants better, and save you more water.

You may also wish to purchase a timer at your local hardware store to make watering even easier! Most importantly, pay special attention to your plants, because they will show you when they are too wet or dry.

GardenSoxx lasts for 3-5 years, and for folks up north, they can leave them out during the winter and reuse them.

You can simply use a soil amendment or plant food to replenish your growing medium after about ~2 years.
We recommend filling GardenSoxx with High Quality Organic Soil, or High Quality Compost.

You can leave your GardenSoxx® outside for the winter. GardenSoxx® do best in outdoor conditions, because this allows the moisture content and biological activity to remain high. GardenSoxx® can also be winterized by adding hay between the GardenSoxx® which helps retain heat while maintaining oxygen permeability.
