Erosion Control Wetland Restoration

Coconut Coir Blankets Restore Ecosystems

erosion control matQuestion: I am in need of erosion control wetland restoration materials. I think I will require several erosion control mats, but I'm unsure of how to determine which one will work best in my location.

Answer: Due to the natural environment that typically surrounds a wetland area, the most common erosion control option is a product that is made from a natural material such as coconut coir. Unlike other fabric materials, these coir products will naturally biodegrade over a period of time, leaving the surrounding soils enriched.

Choosing this type of erosion control material can provide you with a stabilized erosion control area that will not bring additional harm to the surrounding environment. Located on the Wetland Restoration page you will find several erosion control materials that are frequently used during wetland restoration projects.

Erosion Control Mat For Wetland Restoration

erosion and sediment control matOne of the most common products used in erosion control wetland restoration is an coir erosion control mat or blanket. These coir materials are made using a combination of mattress coir and coir twine.

Mattress coir is placed within the coir twine netting which has been weaved in different intervals. Typically, the larger the weave opening is on your mat, the lower the strength of the mat.

All coir materials are derived from the husks of coconuts. These shavings are taken and soaked in water for extended periods of time to increase the strength of the coir. This means that any coir product will provide extended strength and will typically last anywhere from four to six years (4-6 yrs).

Coir Mat Erosion Control Variety
