How to Install Wattles
Erosion wattle installation will use stakes to hold the erosion control products in place. The erosion wattle is an effective BMP for filtration, sediment control, or silt containment. The erosion wattle will retain the sediment, silt, dirt and debris that occurs in the water flowing from your site, acting as a filter for the water flow. Available in diameters of 6 or 9 inches, erosion control wattles accommodate the filtration needs of your area. See below for more information on erosion wattle installation or Contact Us for more information.

Wattle Installation with Biodegradable Stakes
Erosion wattle installation is similar to coir installation in that both erosion control product solutions will use either wood or biodegradable stakes to keep the erosion wattle in place. Erosion control wattle installation can be accomplished through the use of stakes that are placed either along the sides of the erosion wattle or through the erosion wattle to better keep it in place.
Use these tools for erosion wattle installation:
- Wooden or Biodegradable Stakes
- Heavy Materials (Sandbags)
Staples can also be used for wattle installation in order to stabilize the erosion wattle. In order to use this method of erosion control wattle installation, you will need to be performing the wattle installation on dirt, soil, or sediment. Alternatively, you can place an erosion wattle around a street drain or inlet for filtration purposes. In this instance, wooden stakes or biodegradable stakes would not be used for the erosion wattle installation. Weighted materials like sandbags or gravel bags will be necessary to keep the erosion wattle in place for maximum filtration.
