Soil Erosion can be a serious problem, resulting in damage to water sources and in some cases the failure of the slope resulting in landslides. Repairing these damages can be difficult time consuming and expensive. Master Gardner offers several solutions for a variety of applications.
Excelsior Blankets made of premium grade excelsior and knitted together with photo degradable mesh. EB's help contractors comply with storm water management regulations. EB's typically are free of wild weed or grass seed. Available in Single & Double sided Net.
Straw Blankets are cost effective and easy to use. Straw Blankets help stabilize the slope preventing soil loss due to rain, and wind. It creates an ideal condition for maximum seed germination with quick establishment of vegetation aided by the Straw Blankets high moisture absorption. It holds up to five times (5x) its own weight and can last for up to 12 months.
Jute Mesh helps stabilize the slope preventing soil loss due to rain, and wind and creates an ideal condition for maximum seed germination with the quick establishment of vegetation aided by Geo-Jute High moisture absorption, up to five times (5x) its own weight and will last for about one (1) year. Geo-Jute should be installed over a properly prepared, fertilized and seeded area. Make sure the ‘mesh’ is in contact with the soil over the entire area and secured with fabric pins/sod staples every 2’ horizontally and 3’ vertically.
Straw Logs help stabilize the slope by checking water flow reducing soil loss. These sediment and flow control logs are installed in channels or on slopes and can be extremely effective to capture sediment at a single location or to protect a culvert or drain.
Silt Fence is a sediment control fabric designed to impede silt run-off and prevent top soil from washing away from construction sites and fouling ponds & streams.
The Tough durable fence is constructed of woven slit film polypropylene fabric and comes with pre-sharpened hardwood stakes attached. Installation is quick and easy, unroll the fence in the desired area and hammer stakes into the ground; make sure the bottom three (3") of fabric is laying flat and then anchor this portion into the soil with PRO-Pins™ and cover with soil to prevent water from running under the fabric.
