  • Planting vegetation on and around coir rolls can help provide further stabilization.
  • Coir is a 100% natural material and briodegrades over time, enriching the soil and supporting the environment.
  • Coir rolls are available in 10 ft. sections, and can be easily connected together by coir twine to form longer rolls for larger products.
