Straw Erosion Control Blanket Details

The erosion control matting that you need for your location will depend on several factors. Consider the slope of your location, the water flow, and the duration of your project. Choose among the single net straw blanket, double net straw blanket, and straw/coconut coir blanket. A single net straw blanket is erosion control matting that offers short term solutions. A double net straw blanket offers more durable, longer-lasting erosion control.

Netting options for our erosion blankets include the standard polypropylene netting that is photodegradable, meaning it will slowly degrade as it is exposed to light. Biodegradable netting is the recommended netting if you are working in an area that is environmentally sensitive and needs to be protected. Rapid degrade netting uses polypropylene rapid degrade material, which is ideal for areas that need vegetation to quickly take root. For mare information, see: Straw Blanket Product Line (pdf).

Erosion Blanket Frequently Asked Questions

Our erosion blankets are biodegradable and are not meant to harm the surrounding environment when used to limit the effects of erosion. With their different types of photodegradable and biodegradable netting and the different types of straw erosion material used for the interior, our straw erosion mat selection will degrade over time and they do not need to be removed.

Depending on the duration of your erosion control project, you should consider what type of erosion control blankets would work best with your timeline. Depending on the type of material used inside our erosion control matting and the netting used, erosion mat lifespans will vary. For example, our single net straw blanket will degrade more quickly than the double net straw blanket.
