Erosion Control Blankets

Excelsior Matting

Erosion Control blankets are a popular choice to cover slopes and large open areas to prevent erosion and promote re-vegetation. Made from 100% Aspen wood shavings, our Excelsior matting provides a perfect matrix to plant seed in areas needing grass or other vegetation. Our erosion control blanket provides sediment control with moderate erosion and water flow in larger open areas and steep slopes for stabilization. Our Excelsior matting is used primarily for short-term projects with slower water flows on lower slopes. Our biodegradable blankets are made in the US, are affordable, and readily available.

Excelsior Matting and Blankets

Excelsior matting and blankets are a great solution for erosion and sediment control. Designed for use with low to medium water flows, this eco-friendly erosion control product are made to biodegrade with time. This makes the plant-able grass seed matting perfect for areas needing re-vegetation or restoration. This matting holds the seeds in place and keeps them from washing away, providing an suitable environment for seeds to germinate and grow. Once the seed takes root beneath the grass seed mat, the biodegradable fibers simply composts over time, enriching the surrounding soil.

Excelsior Mats/Blankets Frequently Asked Questions

Excelsior natural, Aspen wood mats are completely biodegradable and will promote regrowth as they degrade over time. This is a more environmentally friendly option compared to other erosion control products.

Excelsior mats and blankets are easily installed. Place the mat in an area that has been graded so that the mat comes in complete contact with the soil. We recommend that a trench be made at the top and bottom of your slope to backfill after the mat has been placed. Our alternative erosion mat is installed by unrolling the unit from top to bottom in the direction of the water flow. We recommend a 6 to 8 inch overlap. The erosion control mat is then secured using either stakes or staples. After your mat is securely in place, backfill the trench to further anchor your Excelsior mat.
