Erosion Control Blanket for Banks
Coir Blankets for Plant Growth
Q: I am looking for an erosion control blanket for banks that I can use to support plant growth. I am looking for a life span of about 6 months to 1 year. My area has a slight slope, probably around 3:1, and a low flow. I was looking for something biodegradable and made of straw. What are my options?
A: For the type of bank support and stabilization you require, a great option would be the Biodegradable Erosion Control Straw Blanket. This blanket is constructed from 100% wheat straw which is then placed inside a double jute biodegradable netting. This will give you a blanket that offers a complete level of support for approximately 12 months.

As you have requested, this blanket features a 100 percent biodegradable exterior that helps to make the product environmentally friendly and hassle-free. Biodegradable features include:

Using biodegradable products helps to increase the safety of your product, while also requiring no removal after it has been used. As with many of our natural products, these materials will naturally biodegrade into the surrounding soil to give it further enrichment.
Erosion Control Blanket Life Span and Recommended Use
This S2000BD Straw Blanket features a medium term life span, which is equal to approximately 12 months. The duration of your blanket may be altered based on weathering in your area, as well as several other environmental factors.
