Erosion is a natural part of mother nature whether we like it or not. When there’s rain, there’s erosion. Vegetation (such as trees, grass or shrubs) is the best defense against erosion. However, when vegetation is not available such as after a wildfire, the best defense is man-made solutions and they are erosion control matting.
Here’s how an erosion control product works: During storms, rain hits the ground at approximately 20 MPH. This high velocity of water dislodges soil and causes erosion on a hillside.
When an erosion control product is installed, it acts as a layer or pillow that absorbs a majority of the impact/velocity from rainwater. The soil will still get wet, but the impact of the rainwater hitting the soil is substantially reduced which stops soil from dislodging. In the openings of the matting, rain water will still hit/dislodge the soil, but the netting 1 inch underneath will capture the soil and not allow it to roll down the hill.
Sandbaggy, an industry leader in the erosion control and landscape supply space, recently launched a new erosion control matting that lasts 4-5 times longer than typical erosion control matting. Typical erosion control matting such as straw blankets or jute matting lasts about 6 months. Sandbaggy’s new Coir Mat lasts 2-5 years!
Made from the coconut fiber from the coconut husks, Sandbaggy Coir Mat is made to be tough. This product exceeds DOT and State requirements for an erosion control product. Plus, because it’s made of 100% coconut so its 100% biodegradable!
Sandbaggy’s new product is both cost effective and effective in stopping erosion. This product can be shipped for free anywhere in the lower 48 states directly to the customer’s door.
