Hessian sandbags are a great choice for those who prefer an environmentally friendly option. Hessian is a bio-degradable material that will eventually decompose even if treated for UV rays, rot and mildew which extends its use a little longer. As they are a natural material, they are also ‘wildlife friendly’.
Being a tried and tested product for flood defence, they also have numerous other uses including military, traffic management and demolition.
They can also be used to create attractive natural looking walls and raised borders in the garden.
