3 erosion control products for your home2 mins read
Apart from being a serious issue for landscaping companies and councils, erosion control is also a pressing matter for homeowners who need a land degradation solution.
Good news is that, just as there is a range of erosion control materials that can help with commercial land restoration projects, there are certain products that are suitable for residential use as well.
Here are a few products that you can use to help with erosion control in your garden.
If you’re looking for an effective yet affordable way to prevent erosion in your garden, it’s difficult to look past coir matting.
Coir matting is made of natural coconut fibre. This means that it isn’t only an effective erosion control solution, it’s also completely biodegradable – reducing its impact on the environment.
Coir matting is designed to be installed before any vegetation is added to the affected area. The open weave on the matting traps native seeds, providing a foothold and preventing them from being washed away in the next downpour. To speed up the growth of groundcover and native vegetation, you can plant into the coir matting.
Like coir, jute matting is also environmentally friendly as it is made of biodegradable natural fibres.
Jute matting is an excellent material to prevent further erosion in your garden. Furthermore, it’s an exceptional option for weed control and doesn’t impede the growth of any other plant life.
Jute matting does this by not excluding and retaining any air or water on the ground. It instead allows it to flow through to the soil beneath, supporting the growth of the plant life you want to see.
Geotextile filter fabric
If you’re looking for a way to stabilise a large amount of soil while not impeding any water flow, geotextile fabric is the product for you.
Although this erosion control solution sees most of its use in commercial land restoration and civil construction work, its application can also extend to residential projects. It can be used to reinforce retaining walls and as a lining on water channels to prevent further erosion.
These are some of the products that you can use for erosion control in and around your garden.
