erosion control blanketsYou say either and I say either, you say neither and I say neither.” Have you ever heard that? Well, that’s how it can be with some erosion control products; some people say, “erosion control blankets” and some say, “straw mats or straw blankets,” but whichever, they’re talking about the same thing.

Erosion Control Products

Erosion control blankets and straw mats are designed to protect hills, slopes, wetlands, and banks from wind and water erosion. The temporary biodegradable products are made of natural materials such as coir, straw, or wood excelsior. They provide effective erosion control until vegetation is able to take root.

  • control storm water runoff
  • improve soil quality
  • enhance initial mulching and promotes seed germination
  • kick start the vegetation process allowing the vegetation to properly take root, supports and protects vegetation boosting its overall performance
  • decrease soil erosion
