BACSAC Mobile Plant Containters
BACSAC® was born with the encounter between designer Godefroy de Virieu and landscapers Virgile Desurmont and Louis de Fleurieu. Together, they looked for an alternative solution to get round the constraints of the creation of a roof garden in town: difficulties of transportation, excessive weight, but also lack of choice of containers, most of which are often very expensive.
The idea of planting in bags comes from this desire to change habits and valorize what it should be, the plant. They are launching the manufacture of bags in a permeable geotextile to prevent asphyxiation of the soil.
2007: The experimentation begins with the planting. A year later they notice that the good circulation of air and water within the BACSAC® promotes plant growth, the conditions can almost be compared to those in the earth. The extreme weightless of bags (less than 1kg) discharge the roof garden of the heavy weight of traditional containers.
2008: Together, they create the BACSAC® company and develop the concept.
The geotextile is made in France.
