How to are straw bales used for erosion control?

Straw bales can be used in erosion control by creating an environmentally friendly temporary barrier that helps slow down the flow of water and prevent soil erosion. They are most commonly used for controlling erosion on slopes, hillsides, and other areas where soil is prone to washing away.

Use straw bales for slopes that have sandy or loamy soils, lower water flow, and moderate slopes, between 2:1 and 4:1

Which is cheaper, hay or straw bales?

Straw bales are generally cheaper than hay bales. That’s because straw bales are made from leftover stalks after the grain harvest, thus it’s a byproduct of the grain crops. Hay bales on the other hand are made from dried and harvested grasses, which requires more resources, plus they are grown for a specific use namely animal feed.

What is straw bale used for?

Straw Bales have many uses:

  • Construction - Building Material
  • Gardening
  • Landscaping - Erosion Control
  • Mulch
  • Decorations

How long can you keep a bale of straw?

Straw bales can last several years if stored correctly. Make sure to store your straw bales in a well ventilated area, away from pests, and off the ground, so moisture doesn’t seep in from the bottom. If you can, rotate your bales so they all get good exposure to air and sunlight.

Note if you use straw bales for erosion control, site conditions will have a large impact on lifespan.

What vegetables can you plant in straw bales?

You can grow most vegetables in a straw bale vegetable garden (tomatoes, carrots, etc). Here’s a list of types of vegetables that would not be ideal to grow in a straw bale:

  • Root vegetables like beets and potatoes
  • Large vegetable like pumpkins, watermelons
  • Vegetable that need additional support like corn
  • Vegetables that prefer acidic soil, such as blueberries
