Coconut Blanket - Erosion Control (Biodegradable) - Steep Slopes (1:1) - Lasts 2-5 yr (3.75 ft x 120 ft)
Control Soil Erosion On Steep Slopes!
Sandbaggy coconut erosion control blanket provides erosion protection for 2-3 years! Our coconut fiber blankets are rated for 1:1 slopes (the steepest slopes), meanwhile our jute netting and coir blankets are rated for up to 2:1 slopes. Coconut fibers are 100% biodegradable. They’re able to stop run-off and keep soil in place where vegetation has not been established.
These erosion control rolls are 3.75 ft wide x 120 ft long and able to cover up to 450 square feet each (also available in larger 7.5 ft wide size)., they come in either a plastic or burlap netting (see details below).
Biodegradable Netting: Burlap (Jute)
Burlap netting holds the coconut fibers in place, use burlap when it's required to use a fully biodegradable option.
Non-Biodegradable Netting: Synthetic
Polypropylene netting holds the coconut fibers in place, use this option for more economical purposes when it is not required to use a fully biodegradable blanket.
- Recommended Slope: Up to 1:1
- Dimensions: 3.75 ft x 120 ft (450 sq ft)
- Material: Coconut Fibers
- Netting (holds the coconut fibers in place)
- Burlap (Natural Jute)
- Polypropylene (Synthetic)
- Stabilize Steep Slopes (1:1) & Hills: Suitable for steep 1:1 slopes! Sandbaggy coconut erosion control blankets provide a strong physical barrier against erosion while also allowing for moisture and nutrient retention in the soil.
- Control Erosion In High Flow Channels like Streams and Riverbanks: Coconut erosion control blankets are a great option for High Flow Channels as they can withstand the high water flow rates and provide effective erosion control and bank stabilization.
- Soil Retention: Coconut fibers make highly effective soil retention blankets. They help to stabilize the soil and prevent erosion by providing a strong physical barrier, while allowing for water infiltration and plant growth.
- A Better Alternative to Jute and Coir: Coconut erosion control blankets are a better option than jute and coir matting for erosion control as they have a longer lifespan, superior water retention, stronger physical barrier, better weed suppression, and are more resistant to degradation.
- Prepare the soil by raking the area free of stones and clods. A Bobcat or tractor may be needed for large jobs. Do not compact. If using fertilizer, add it to the soil before grading.
- Seeds and Mulch (if required) should be distributed evenly over the prepared soil.
- Coconut Blanket should be applied by unrolling down the slope or in the direction of water-flow.
- Dig a trench across the top of the slope. This trench should be 6 inches by 6 inches.
- Install the Coconut Blanket in the trench. Place at least 12 inches of the roll above the trench (further up the slope). Space each staple about a foot apart inside the trench
- Once staples are installed inside the trench, backfill and compact dirt inside the trench.
- Bring the extra 12 inches of the coconut roll (on step 5) and cover the trench area. Use additional staples (1 foot apart) secure.
- Place staples 18" to 24" apart throughout to secure matting to ground. All staples must be driven flush with soil surface.
- Always overlap the edges 2" to 6". At the end of each roll, fold back 4" to 9” of the matting. Overlap this 4" to 8" over the start of the next roll. Securely staple the two layers to the ground.
What are Coconut Erosion Control Blankets?
Coconut Erosion Control Blankets are natural, biodegradable materials that are used for erosion control and slope stabilization. They are made from woven coconut fibers, and are designed to provide a physical barrier to soil erosion, while allowing water and air to pass through to promote healthy plant growth.
How do Coconut Erosion Control Blankets work?
Coconut Erosion Control Blankets work by providing a protective layer over the soil that helps to prevent soil erosion caused by wind, rain, and water flow. The coconut fibers in the blankets form a strong physical barrier that helps to keep the soil in place, while allowing water to penetrate into the soil, promoting healthy plant growth.
What are the benefits of using Coconut Erosion Control Blankets over other erosion control materials?
Coconut Erosion Control Blankets offer several benefits over other erosion control materials. They are biodegradable and environmentally friendly, as they are made from natural materials. They are also highly effective at erosion control, providing a strong physical barrier that is resistant to degradation. Coconut Erosion Control Blankets also have superior water retention and weed suppression capabilities compared to other erosion control materials.
How are Coconut Fiber Blankets installed?
Coconut Fiber Blankets are typically installed by first preparing the soil surface and ensuring it is properly graded. The blanket is then unrolled over the soil surface and anchored in place using stakes or staples. The blanket is then secured at the top and bottom edges to prevent wind uplift, and a topsoil layer is applied over the blanket to promote healthy plant growth.
