An erosion control blanket can be a very effective way of stabilizing the landscape, preventing erosion, and enabling the growth of vegetation on the land.
Erosion Control Blankets can be effective in minimizing the erosive effect of rainfall when used to cover bare or newly planted soil. They stabilize the soil to protect new plantings and reduce the potential for introducing sediment into storm water run-off. Erosion Control Blankets are excellent for protecting newly graded slopes and open areas. They are easy to install and good for temporary erosion control on highly erodable areas and slopes.
Erosion Blankets are made from natural coir fibres derived from husks of coconuts. The natural coir fibres provide good water absorption, high tensile strength and are bio-degradable. Erosion Control Blankets increase water filtration into the soil. They hold seed saplings in place and protect them from eroding during rainy and windy seasons. They retain soil moistures to promote germination and prevent erosion.
INSTALLATION OF EROSION CONTROL BLANKETS
Remove all rocks, debris and vegetation to ensure the soil surfaces touch the Erosion Control Blankets. Erosion Control Blankets should be anchored to the soil using metal wire or timber staples. The staples should be driven through the Erosion Control Blankets and into the soil, flush with the soil surface.
