Sand bags are perfect for weighing down the edges of Caterpillar Tunnels, Silage Tarps and Row Covers. Ours are made out of a UV stabilized, woven material similar to our ground cover. They come in a pack of 100, unfilled (Buying your own sand is cheaper than shipping it, trust us!).
How many sand bags will I need to hold a silage tarp in place?
At spacings of one bag every five feet on the perimeter and ten bags down the middle:
- 24' × 100' = 60 bags
- 32' × 100' = 64 bags
- 40' × 100' = 66 bags
- 50' × 100' = 70 bags
Sandbag weight averages 10–15 pounds depending on amount and type of fill material.
