Coir Fiber Log Installation

coconut coir log installationTypically, coir log installation involves a process of trenching and staking. After the project has been cleared of debris and other obstructions, a small trench can be dug for placement of the coconut coir logs. Each log can then be placed inside the trench and staked. Spacing for the stakes will vary depending on your location and water flows. Typical staking placement is as follows:

Staking/Anchoring Layout

Stream Flow Diameter Anchor Height Anchor Spacing
Large Heavy 20 in. 4 ft. Min Every 2 ft.
Large Moderate 16 in. 3 ft. Min Every 2.5 ft.
Medium Moderate 12 in. 30 in. Min Every 3 ft.
Medium Low 12 in. 30 in. Min Every 3.5 ft.
