Streambank Erosion Control


Erosion Control Solutions with Coir Products

erosion control matQuestion: We are looking for a form of stream bank erosion control. We recently cleared some ditch liners and are thinking we should put something on the banks to control the erosion. What would be a good option?

Answer: Thank you for contacting us! For streambank erosion control, there are a couple of different options you could consider. Many customers choose to use items such as the Erosion Control Mat, as it can naturally line the banks of a stream and help revegetate areas through its open weave design. Another option you may consider are coir logs. Made from the same natural fibers, the coir log can offer a higher level of control for dealing with streams or heavy flows.

Common features and benefits found when using this product include:

  • Open Weave Design: The coir erosion control mat shown here is a semi-permanent model that features an open weave design. This leaves enough room for planting seeds both before and after installation.
  • Natural Coir Fibers: The natural coir fibers used for this product are ideal for environmentally sensitive areas and are 100 percent natural. This means they will naturally biodegrade after a period of time and leave enriched soil.
  • Semi-Permanent: This particular coir mat is a semi-permanent model, meaning it will last for around four to six years (4-6 yrs). This is long enough for vegetation to take root and form a natural erosion control area.
