Landscaping and Agriculture
One major advantage of hessian jute fabric is that, because it is made entirely from natural vegetable fibers, it is completely biodegradable. Green farmers love this property since biodegradable fabrics do not contribute to the earth’s load.
This property also makes it extremely useful in landscaping and agricultural uses that require incorporating fabric support into outdoor projects. Here is an overview of how hessian jute functions in the worlds of landscaping and agriculture.
Hessian Jute in Landscaping Applications
Landscape designs that include tree transplantation often rely on hessian jute to ensure that young trees arrive at the planting venue intact and unharmed. This is achieved by wrapping hessian jute fabric around the roots and soil of a tree shortly after digging it from its original location.
The breathability of the fabric allows sufficient aeration of the soil, and the hessian’s moisture-resistant properties prevent excess water from accumulating and allowing the growth of mold, mildew, or other types of rot. Here, we also see another reason why this fabric’s strength makes it so applicable to widespread uses.
Once planted, young trees may require protection from hessian jute to ward off mice and other rodents that might otherwise eat their bark and compromise their structure. To keep rodents at bay, landscapers often wrap swathes of hessian jute around the trunks of young trees of all varieties.
In addition to protecting from animals, hessian jute also has the capacity to protect trees from excessive sun and wind. By building windbreaks from hessian jute, landscapers can exert some control over the environment in which young trees grow, thus maximizing their chances of growing to maturity so that they can withstand more intense weather conditions.
For planting grass, too, hessian jute often comes in handy. On areas that have steep slopes or high levels of soil erosion, a layer of hessian jute tacked on over grass seeds can prevent seeds from being moved by rain, runoff, or wind. Landscapers can use this fabric for many uses due to its strength, durability, moisture resistance, and protective properties.
In all these applications, hessian jute’s ability to biodegrade into the soil around it make it eco-friendly in addition to being effective.
Hessian Jute Fabric in Agriculture
The transportation of agricultural products often involves bags made from hessian jute fabric. In addition to foodstuffs such as coffee, flour, vegetables, and grains, hessian jute bags (commonly known as gunnysacks) are commonplace in the shipment of wool, tobacco, and cotton. Its ability to allow contents to breathe makes hessian jute excellent at preventing or minimizing rotting due to trapped moisture. In some cases, hessian can even be specially treated to avoid specific kinds of rot and decay.
