Dig a trench at the bottom and top of your project slope to backfill the coir fiber mat in place once you've secured the erosion mat with the proper anchoring accessories. Once this has been done, install the mats by unrolling the coir fiber matting in the direction of the flow of water.
Once you've installed your coconut coir fiber mat by unrolling it and placing it in the direction of the flow of water, you will need to secure it in place.
