Advantages of Switch Sock
Switchsock or Switchgrass is a sediment and erosion control product. You will find switchgrass in the warmer seasons in tallgrass prairies, grass pastures, and naturalized along roadsides. It’s a dominant species in the native parts of North America, Canada, and Mexico. It’s often used to lay down grass in lawns and light-duty sediment control like stream crossings.
- Multi-Use: Switchsock can be used for more than laying down grass in a lawn. Here are some other ways people use Swittchsock: used primarily for soil conservation, forage production, game cover, as an ornamental grass, in phytoremediation projects, fiber, electricity, heat production, for biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide, and more recently as a biomass crop for ethanol and butanol.
- Eco-Friendly: Switchgrass naturally decomposes and helps enrich the soil, making it eco-friendly. Switchgrass Swithstock stays put and quickly decomposes, especially compared to other tubular sediment control products, perfect for soil conservation.
- Light Weight & Durable: Switchgrass is lightweight, yet strong and won’t easily rupture. The netting will stay together and compact, to make sure all the sediment stays together.
