Build Earthbag Homes, Control Erosion, or Prevent Flooding!

Sandbaggy extra Long Sandbags are available in 6, 12, and 25 ft lengths. They are great for heavy duty applications, such as building earthbag homes and building large water barriers to protect against floods or control erosion. Our Sandbags are military grade and UV resistant, so they are built to last and withstand harsh conditions.

When compared to using regular sandbags, using extra long tube sandbags is a much faster alternative for building a sandbag wall. These sandbags come with pre-attached ties, so when you are done filling them up, just tie them and they're ready to go!

    What are long sandbags called?

    Long sandbags are also called tube sandbags or snake sandbags.

    How long is a sand bag?

    Sandbags can vary in length, the standard length of sandbags are 26-30 inches and usually don't get longer than 6 ft.

    How do sandbags stop erosion?

    Sandbags stop or control erosion by acting as a water barrier to minimize soil or sediment loss. A perfect example is creating a sandbag wall on a beach to minimize the waves impact from eroding a rocky cliff.

    Are sandbags effective against flooding?

    Sandbags prevent flooding by acting as a water barrier to divert water, this is due to the sand's coarse texture making it less porous (ability to absorb water) than other materials. The main benefit of using sandbags to prevent flooding is just how simple and quick they are to use and set up.

    Great variety

    We purchased the 12' long tubes, never having used sandbags before. Wanted to help with the flow in our carport during Monsoons which go straight in to our carport. The good thing is they seem to be of good quality. The bad thing which we were clueless is how to do fill and/or move something so long....we are figuring it out and cutting them smaller which is ok. They are large diameter than we thought so maybe a bit more overkill than we needed but they will work fine.

    Useful in building a berm for small pond

    We used these to help build a small berm around a backyard pond. Sandbags feel sturdy underfoot (we covered them with pond underlayment and then flat stones). The only problem with sandbags was the way they came together. Enter the Sand Snakes - aka the endless sandbag. These make a smooth and stable berm to edge a pond and create plenty of extra height to allow for heavy rain events. They go a long distance, we probably could have gotten by with just 2 of them but odds are good we will modify this pond so having extras is not bad.
