Biodegradable soil blankets
We supply rolls of biodegradable soil blankets as they blend in really well with gabions and provide even further natural materials for soil erosion protection and vegetative support and growth.
The soil is kept moist and cool during the growth phase of plants, encouraging growth before the soil is lost to the elements. Both the woven and non-woven blankets are available, they help provide nitrogen into the soil.
These blankets can be made of hessian, jute or coconut fiber. Life spans rage from 6 months to 3 years for the coir(coconut fibre). Coir logs can be used alongside/ across streams to retain soils. Coir fibre can last long in water.
Blankets are layed down and pegged into the soil on steeper slopes, promoting water and soil particle retention.
