Products for Erosion Control
Soil Erosion Control Products are economical items designed to target erosion problems that often occur as a result of rainfall, water flows, wind, or stormwater runoff. Offered in biodegradable or synthetic materials, these products have assisted customers in stabilization areas and increases support until vegetation is able to take root.

Soil Erosion Control Prevention Products:
Some of the most commonly used items for soil support and stabilization include our variety of natural fiber coir and straw products. Featuring mats, wattles, logs and blocks, these products are an environmentally safe way to support locations until vegetation is able to take root.

Woven Geotextiles are most commonly chosen for locations that require high strength stabilization. This may include placement under roads, drive ways, railroads, rip rap or other areas dealing with heavy objects or high traffic.
Nonwoven Geotextiles are used for any location dealing with drainage or filtration. Due to their felt like exterior, water is able to flow more quickly through the fabric. This keeps water flows high, while still allowing particles to be effectively filtered out.

Biodegradable Erosion Control Products
Biodegradable erosion control products are an all-natural alternative to the synthetic erosion control options. In addition to stabilizing and reinforcing areas, these products have the added benefit of naturally biodegrading over time. This is perfect for locations dealing with natural wildlife, vegetation or environmentally sensitive areas.
Natural Fiber Products:
Natural fiber products are often used in conjunction with seeds or vegetation. As the mat stabilizes the soil area, vegetation and other materials are able to take root. Over time, rooted vegetation will form a natural erosion control barrier.
Natural fiber products include the following:
Soil Erosion Control Facts:
Erosion is the process of weathering and transport of solids (soil) from their original source to somewhere else. This process takes many forms. Soil can be eroded by wind, water, ice, down slope creep (gravity) or even living organisms (bio-erosion).
A major factor affecting soil erosion is the amount and type of ground cover. Ideal soil contains a mineral layer protected by a litter layer, and finally an organic layer. When the litter layer is removed, soil is more susceptible to erosion. To learn more, visit our page on the causes of soil erosion.
The use of natural or synthetic fiber has greatly helped to increase the strength of banks, roads, and rip rap areas. This has, in turn, helped to limit the amount of erosion present in various areas.

Stormwater Management Products
For many sites, soil and erosion control is also necessary around a site and within a water body. This is especially relevant for areas dealing with construction near water or for any location dealing with stormwater runoff. For stormwater management and control, products include the following:
