River Bank Erosion Solved With Coir
Erosion Control On The Shore Solved With Coir Fiber Products
We experienced a river bank erosion problem. The riverbank behind our house in Michigan was an eyesore. We were having difficulties with erosion control on the shore. We tried using old tires to solve the problem, but not only did it look terrible, it wasn't environmentally beneficial.
We contacted Granite Environmental, Inc (now GEI Works). to help us find a better erosion control solution for our 200 feet of stream erosion. They suggested their all-natural coconut fiber logs and coir blankets. Based on our project needs, goals and expectations, together, we determined that the 16 inch Coir Logs and the Semi-Permanent Erosion Control Blanket would do the best erosion control job.
The coir logs prevented further erosion damage and the coir fiber blanket allowed us to plant seedlings to provide future control of the erosion. The coir materials were secured with oak stakes. As we began our river bank erosion control project, our neighbors took interest. The concept, ease of installation, environmental benefits and the low cost inspired us both. We as neighbors teamed up and completed both properties at the same time.
Not only did we solve the erosion control problem, but we had fun doing the coir log and coir blanket installation at the same time. Thank you for your support, GEI Works team!
