Made from natural plant fibers, the properties of jute netting make it the most natural, affordable, and practical means to keep soil in place and prevent run-off on slopes.
Here's how Jute Netting stops erosion: Rain hits the ground at approximately 20 MPH. This high velocity of water then dislodges soil and causes erosion on a hillside.
When Jute Netting is installed, it acts as a layer or pillow that absorbs a majority of the impact/velocity from rainwater. The soil will still get wet, but the impact of the rainwater hitting the soil is substantially reduced. In the openings of the matting, rain water will still hit/dislodge the soil, but the netting 1 inch underneath will capture the soil and not allow it to roll down the hill.
The key to an effective erosion solution is to place staples every 2-3 feet apart, ensuring good contact between the soil and the Jute Mat.
Natural - 100% Biodegradable
Fully biodegradable jute netting rolls are an ideal method to stop erosion and keep soil in place until plant have established roots in the soil.

How To Install Jute Netting
- Prepare the soil by grading or raking the area free of clods and large stones
- 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
- Jute Netting 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 jute netting 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 jute 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
