Coir Log FAQs

Where to Place a Coir Log

  • In flowing water areas: Coir fiber rolls can be placed directly on the bank, often retaining fill material or securing new channel alignment.
  • In standing water: Coconut coir logs are placed offshore to break waves and encourage sedimentation and re-vegetation.

Coconut products such as blocks, logs, and mats are also recommended products for soil bio-engineering. For more information, check out our Coir Log Installation Page
