Baumbad produces tree watering bags that will last for years if used properly. And if some bags are no longer usable over the years, our customers order from us again - such as our first customers from 2019. There are also a few things to consider when it comes to the high processing quality so that the bags can do their job. Here you can find out everything you need to know about caring for your baumbad bags.

Made from sturdy material

The baumbad irrigation bags have been developed for a period of use of several years. We made them as simple as possible so that they are all the more durable. We also use tear and impact resistant material with a supportive weave. We also produce the bags with a high material density: the 75 liter baumbad PVC bag, for example, weighs 680 grams, which corresponds to a weight of 400 grams per m2. This high material density forms the backbone for the robust bag. The baumbad PE bag is even more robust than the PVC bag.

The most important care instructions

Before we start with the care instructions, it is important to understand the main factors that reduce the lifespan of tree bags. These are:

  • Weather influences such as storms, hail, frost and snow
  • Lawnmower or robotic lawnmower
  • Winter services sweeping snow
  • Rodents, martens or larger wild animals. They drink from the bags if they can't find any other water

And here are the main factors that cause the bags to become clogged:

  • Use of stagnant water with algae, for example from ponds
  • Use of very hard water
  • Algae formation after very long use
  • Fertilizer additives (depending on chemical composition)

The most important care instructions can be derived from this:

  • Only leave the bags hanging on the tree during the months when they are needed. When the watering season ends in autumn, the bags should be cleaned and dried and stored in a dry place
  • Take the bags from the tree when you mow the lawn
  • Place water in another rodent container during high heat and prolonged droughts. Then the animals do not need to gnaw bags
  • Use water that is as clean as possible
