Straw Erosion Control Blanket Applications
Straw erosion control blanket can be used in a variety of applications where temporary erosion control in a low slope area is needed. The single net straw erosion control blanket is safe for environmentally sensitive areas and will biodegrade after one year, depending on the site conditions. Straw mat rolls are ideal for projects and areas that can handle fast-growing vegetation.
Because of the temporary nature of the straw erosion mat, having vegetation that will grow and develop roots quickly is best. Having fast rooting vegetation will encourage natural erosion control when the straw erosion control blanket degrades. As you install the straw mat rolls, you can use erosion control accessories like metal staples, biodegradable stakes and pegs, and wooden stakes.
