Online Fabric Store for REAL Garden & Landscape Fabrics

online fabric store outdoor fabrics

There is nothing glamorous about a pile of burlap, but nonetheless, I am innately drawn to it.  This explains my excitement at discovering the Online Fabric Store’s line of textile products.   This is the kind of place where when you click on the ‘outdoor and landscape’ section, rather than getting the latest patterns on sunbrella fabric, you get noseeum netting, burlap in a rainbow of colors (who wants regular old burlap when you can have it in baby pink or burnt Siena?), funky oilcloth, webbing staps, new and used grain bags (BTW, at a tiny tiny fraction of the price that I have seen them at Brimfield) cheese cloth by the bolt and even my long lusted for Chalk board Cloth.  Ahhhhh I feel like the clouds just parted and a ray of light is shining on me.  I love REAL garden fabrics.

    Thanks for the great resource! The prices seem quite reasonable. I am thinking that some red burlap would make an excellent tepee cover for the bamboo frame I made last year. I have tried growing vines up it (which I might still do), but this would help give the kids the privacy they want. I wonder how quick the color might fade.

    I am curious what you would do with burlap in the garden (besides wrap plants in the winter)?

    I use it to cover plants in the back of the pickup truck for transport when shopping. I also use it to stabilize soil that I don’t want to move should it rain (ie the compost pile while it is being dispersed, a hillside that is disturbed). Also when its all hole-y and done being useful, I lay it in the soil lasagana style with dirt and let it decompose and build the soil. Also — last year, I used it as extra watering mulch (I soaked it a few times a week) wrapped around the base of a shrub that was struggling (not sure if it was helpful, but I was desperate). — and on the style side — I drape it around and spread it across tables at every opportunity. I just like the texture and earthiness of it.
