10 Easy Pieces: Jute and Burlap Netting and Landscape Fabric

July 17, 2018

Jute is a jack of all trades in the garden. A natural fiber, jute is used to make burlap or hessian netting and landscape fabrics. These problem solvers are tough, inexpensive, and environmentally friendly. (Unlike plastic, jute is biodegradable.)

Do you need to control erosion, suppress weeds, create a trellis for a climbing edible plant, germinate wildflower seeds, shade tender plants from sun, or protect them from winter weather? Netting or landscape fabric can do it all.

Here’s a roundup of 10 choices—in a variety of sizes, widths, and weaves to make it easy to find the right fit. Please let us know if you have a favorite jute or burlap landscape fabric or netting that we’ve overlooked.
