Erosion Control Products
Excelsior Biodegradable Erosion Control
Our Excelsior erosion control products made with biodegradable, eco-friendly fabrics include blanket/mats, wattles, and logs. Excelsior makes an excellent substitute for coir. It’s biodegradable but it is much less expensive than coir and ships faster to you. All of our alternative erosion control products are produced with naturally strong and durable fibers from Aspen wood. Harvested Aspen wood is shredded into unique curls, creating interlocking fiber with barbed edges. This makes Excelsior perfect for erosion and sediment control applications such as slope stabilization and natural creation of borders along waterways and shorelines. Made in the US, our biodegradable erosion control saves you time and money!
Note: Coir, like many products sourced from overseas, is less available due to trouble with supply and getting the products getting the products through port systems. Across the entire industry, Coir is not only less available, but also more expensive. However, we do have erosion control alternatives.

Excelsior Erosion Control Products
Excelsior erosion and sediment control products are constructed of all-natural, Aspen wood shavings that are used to make our alternative fabric. The curled fiber’s structure allows soil to bond with it once it’s wet, holding the soil in place. This makes it a great choice for vegetation regrowth and erosion control. Because it’s 100% natural, it simply composts after a period of time, leaving nothing behind. The lifespan of our Excelsior products range from 1 to 3 years depending on their application. Our slope erosion and sediment control options give you a wide variety of uses. We offer:

Biodegradable Landscape Stakes
Whether using Excelsior blankets or logs as one of many of our erosion control methods, it is important that products are installed properly with the right supplies. Biodegradable Landscape Stakes make an excellent alternative to traditional metal staples and pegs. With a lifespan of 24 - 36 months, stakes never need to be removed. They degrade over time into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass. The alternating rib design, double hooks, and size variety (4", 6", and 8") ensure they can be used in all ground conditions, even hard or frozen soil. For all of our erosion control installation supplies, see our erosion control staples and stakes pdf.
