Which erosion control product is right for me?

2 mins read

Erosion control is one of the most important things that you need control of when working on land restoration projects. However, soil erosion can be presented in many different ways and there isn’t one erosion control product that can fix every type of soil erosion. In order to deal with different types of soil erosion, you need a range of different products. Here are some of the products that you might need to tackle different types of soil erosion.

Coir matting

If you’re looking to prevent soil erosion of sloped land, coir matting is the perfect erosion control product. Coir matting is a weaved sheet of completely biodegradable coconut fibre, that is designed to provide additional strength to soil, preventing any further soil erosion, as well as encouraging the growth of new plant life.

Geotextile

Geotextile is made up of a non-woven fabric and is available in two different forms – filter tubes and filter fabric. Both are used to combat soil erosion, but in different ways. Geotextile fabric is used to reinforce retaining walls and stabilise roads in order to prevent any further damage from soil erosion. Geotextile tubes are designed to combat one of the products of soil erosion, by preventing pollution from entering drains.

Jute matting

Similar to coir matting, jute matting is made of a completely natural fabric, which is designed to prevent the growth of weeds, as well as controlling erosion, all whilst still letting water and air pass through it. As a result, jute matting is often used to support the growth of new plants, as it can support growth without attracting weeds.

Root barrier

Many native plants require a lot of water in order to grow properly. As a result, many native plants have root systems that are designed to quickly spread out in order to get more water. However, the root growth of some plants can become invasive, encroaching on other plants and potentially causing damage to structures such as garden beds and driveways. Root barriers are easy to install and maintain and allow you to prevent the root systems of your plants from causing any damage.
