Exclusive | Cut Your Watering Chores by 80%

  • Handy mats let you water potted plants less frequently
  • Fabric contains polymer crystals that absorb water, then release it slowly to plants as they need it
  • Mats can be trimmed to fit your container or hanging basket
  • Choose pre-cut mats or a 15' roll

When we first tested these water-absorbing mats, the results seemed too good to be true. So we asked some of our customers to try them, and they gave Hydro-Mats rave reviews! Each individual mat holds a full quart of water, wicking it up almost instantly and then releasing it slowly, so you water weekly instead of daily. Choice of a set of eight 7" x 7" mats or a 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll.

  • Made of poly-spun fabric with polymer crystals
  • Set of eight 7" x 7" mats or 15' L x 21-3/4" W roll
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      I used the Hydro-mats for pots with smaller diameters at the top and for window boxes on the rail of my deck. So far the pots have needed less watering.

      No More Dripping Baskets

        Comments about Hydro-Mats:

        I have always had problems with water pouring through my coco-lined hanging baskets whenever I watered. I tried several things and even lined them with plastic. The hydro mat solves all my problems. Only occasionally will one drip some water but the water no longer pours through. They also allow me to skip a day of watering as they absorb the moisture and release it back when needed.

              For the third summer, I am putting these hydro mats in my hanging baskets and potted plants. They really do cut down on the need to water during the hot summer months. My only complaint: wish they came in a round size to better fit my pots and baskets.

                  Plants hanging in a small greenhouse can dry out quickly, so these are a solution in case time doesn't permit daily watering.

                      It is an easy way to cut down on watering but confusing as to which is the bubbly side up.

                        The Hydromats are a great innovation. I use them in all of my planters and containers, outdoors. I do lots of container gardening and purchase the roll of hydro-matting , so that it can be cut to fit into the various sizes of containers and flower boxes. I grow tomato plants in large pots and use them for this purpose, as well. They keep the soil moist and take the worry out of having to constantly water , especially in very hot weather. The plants grow very well and I would not think of planting anything in a container without using them. However, indoor plants would benefit from their use as well. I highly recommend this product as the results from the use is terrific. I hope that they will always be available. The fact that they can be used for more than one season is an added bonus.

                          I have been using hydro-mats for the past several years and always plant my hanging baskets with this product. Plants retain moisture much longer and grow better when using the hydro-mats. Cut hydro-mat material to fit the inside of a pot or cocoa mat and place soil on top. Also makes clean-up at end of season easier. When using hydro mats, cocoa mats can be re-used over and over. The big roll is great, can be cut to fit any size container. I love this product and highly recommend it!
