Bacsac - Nature is in the Bag
La nature est dans le sac
The French company Bacsac was founded in the year 2008 with the aim to revolutionize the world of the garden. Bacsac designs and produces first class plant containers in different forms and sizes; this allows gardens to be created even on city balconies and smaller terraces.
The history of Bacsac began when the designer Godefroy de Virieu met the landscapers Louis de Fleurieu and Virgile Desurmont. Together, they searched for a favourable concept to enable or make it easier to create garden landscaping in cities. The main problem for inner-city roof gardens is transporting the heavy materials.
This is how the idea emerged to replace flower pots with light bags. The three designers chose geotextiles that prevent the plants suffocate in the materials. As well as the circulation of water and air, such a plant bag has the advantage of freeing your terrace from heavy conventional flower pots.
In 2008, the company Bacsac was founded all around the plant bag. The new plant bag was presented to the public at the garden fair “Jardins, jardins”. Experts praised the creativity of the concept. Visitors were surprised by the flexibility, mobility and lightness of Bacsac.
In 2009, Bacsac presented Bacsquare: a fully adequate and at the same time flexible garden. The Baclong is another alternative, featuring a more rectangular shape and the ability to grow different plant types next to each other, thanks to the hidden sections.
