Coir Logs for Lake Bank Erosion Control
Shoreline Stabilization with Coconut Coir Logs
Question: My company is looking for coir logs to buy for a lake shore stabilization project. What are the prices for GEI Works' coir logs? What are the sizes you have available? I have 140 feet of lake shoreline to cover. What length do they come in?
What diameters do they come in? I have a beach that is very prone to boat wakes and waves from the wind and need a larger diameter to protect from erosion. I don't know the slope in degrees but it's quite gradual.
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works about your project! GEI Works offers coir logs for lake shore stabilization projects in lengths of 10 or 20 feet. We have 12, 16, and 20 inch diameter coconut coir logs available. Based on the needs of the project, different diameter coir logs may be required.

Coir Logs for Lake Shoreline Stabilization
Coir Logs (as well as several other coir products offered by GEI Works) are a 100% natural, biodegradable favorite for areas along lakes, ponds, and small streams. Their natural fiber construction helps to provide a level of lake bank erosion control that will not cause harm to the surrounding environment.
Some advantages customers have found when using coconut coir logs and other coir products for lake shore stabilization include:
- Resistant to Rust and Rot (helpful for areas in constant contact with water)
- Degrades Over 2 to 5 Years
- Easy to Install
As mentioned before, coconut coir logs are available in lengths of 10 or 20 feet. To reach the requested length of 140 feet, several coir logs can be joined together through the use of coir twine and secured with biodegradable stakes.
