Erosion Control Steep Slopes

Slope Stabilization with Erosion Control Mats

coir erosion control mat hillsideQuestion: I am looking for natural erosion control for steep slopes. Ideally, I am looking for a natural coir fiber product that can be placed on a 1:1 slopes. I require about 9,000 square feet and will then be planting beach grass and rosa rogusa plants in the area. Would coir be able to hold up in this setting with all the plants? Would I need to cut holes in the material for the plants?

Answer: For natural erosion control on steep slopes, a great option would be one of our Coir Erosion Control Mats. These matting materials are made from the all-natural coir fiber and come in different strengths depending on the weight of each individual mat.

For steeper areas, higher-strength mats, such as the Coir Mat 90, will offer the best support. This erosion control mat features a higher weight that can handle steep slopes or larger water flows.

Erosion Control Coir Planting for Steep Slopes


erosion control mats installation

The coir material is one of the best options for installing and securing plants in your area. In general, the coir mat typically features an open weave design. This means that each mat will feature a series of weave openings that provide access to the natural ground.

This makes the vegetation process easy as plants or seeds can be planted before mat installation to grow through the weaves. Plants may also be added after the mat has been installed directly through the weave openings.
