These bags are tough. They will stand up to most lawn and garden needs. I've used them for construction trash too. Did you ever overload a kitchen trash bag, and then have it rupture on your way to the outdoor trash bin? I have, and I hate it. We use these for everything, including the kitchen. No more smelly messy cleanups. I rated them 4 bars on the value only because they are a little pricy. But, I'm pretty frugal and still use them for the kitchen. When you consider that I never have to double bag with these. I'm probably saving money.
I use several boxes of these bags every week and I have never had one break or tear. I had problems with other brands of bags of a similar thickness and price range where the bottom bursts open upon lifting heavy loads. I am also able to drag them across the ground without spilling the contents.
