Coir Logs For Bank Stabilization
Erosion Control Coir Logs
Interested in Coir logs for bank stabilization. Can you tell me how much a coir log costs? We are working on a bank stabilization project and thought this would be an option. What are the coir logs options you have available? Do they come pre-seeded with vegetation?
The coconut coir logs available on our site are made from mattress coir fiber that has been densely packed within a tubular coir netting. This fiber has been created from the husks of coconuts and cured for increased strength and stability. Built with high quality materials, this erosion control option is an excellent strength for stabilization and slope reinforcement applications.
Coir Log Sizing
In terms of sizing, we have several different coir log models available to help with stabilization efforts in your area. Standard coir logs come in lengths of ten feet (10') and have the following diameter options:
- 12 inches
- 16 inches
- 20 inches
The twelve inch (12") diameter options come in density options of either 7 pounds per cubic foot or 9 pounds per cubic foot.
Coconut Coir Log Seeding
When seeding a coconut coir log, the plants and vegetation are typically chosen based specifically on the need and surrounding environment in your area. For this reason, coir logs do not come pre-seeded with any kind of vegetation. Seeding and vegetation can, however, be placed and planted in the log after it has been installed on your location.
Typical planting for a coir log has included the use of native or surrounding plant life. Using plants that are already natural to your area helps to increase the likelihood of plants taking root and establishing quickly, as they have already been proven to support this specific plant in your area.
Coconut Coir logs have been used for stabilization in several different locations and erosion-prone areas including the following:
- Stream Banks
- River Banks
- Coast Lines
- Around Swales
- Around Construction Sites
