Silt Fence without the Stakes
Geotextiles for Erosion Control
Question: I need about 200 ft of silt fence without the stakes for erosion control. Do you carry anything like that? Can you ship to north Alabama? I am looking for something without stakes primarily because I already have these stakes. Do you know how I can anchor them?

Anchoring the Silt Fencing
Silt fencing is typically anchored according to your location and the type of fabric you use. In general, stakes will usually include the following materials:
- Wood: Wooden stakes are a favorite for this type of fence installation. Types of wood that are commonly used include the following:
- Oak (typically around 5' in length and 2" in diameter)
- Pine (typically at least 4" in diameter)
- Metal: Metal stakes or posts may also be used as required. It is generally recommended that these have a minimum weight of 1 to 1.33 lbs/ linear foot.
Most DOT projects require that the posts are spaced no more than six feet (6') apart during their installation. These silt fences are typically constructed with extra-strength fabric without wire mesh requirements. Standard fabrics can also be used with wire mesh for spacing of no more than ten feet (10') apart.
