Central Sod's Tips and Articles

What will happen if it rains on my Terra Tote before I have a chance to install it?

Have you ever had bulk soil or compost delivered by a dump truck? They just dump it on your lawn or driveway and if it rains your bulk products turn into a muddy mess. This is part of the reason Terra Totes are so great. There is no mess left behind from a pile of bulk soil and we can place the totes where most dumptrucks cannot go.


As long as you keep the top on your Terra Tote tied tight, water will be unable to enter the bag like the water puddled on this tote above

The bags that Terra Tote bulk products come in are made from a heavy duty woven material similar to that of a tarp. As long as you have the top of the bag tied up tightly, there will be very little, if any, water that can penetrate the bag.  For added protection you could always throw a tarp or piece of plastic over the bag. This will leave your soil dry and ready to use for when your resume your project.


The soil inside the tote remains moist and does not get muddy.
