Can “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” “Sally loves seashells down by the seashore.” “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”
We’ve grown up our whole lives trying to say these famous tongue twisters; sometimes successfully, sometimes with great frustration. But in our line of work, there is another tongue twister that sometimes, takes our customers a few attempts at pronunciation to get right: Switchgrass Switchsock.
Switchsock is a perennial warm-season bunchgrass native to North America and parts of Canada and Mexico. Switchgrass is one of the dominant species of the central North American tallgrass prairie and can be found in remnant prairies, in native grass pastures, and naturalized along roadsides. It is 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.
Bedrock Environmental uses only the very best in Switchsock for our valued customers. Switchsock uses high strength netting filled with switchgrass. The light weight of Switchsock makes it a great solution for short-term sediment control applications. Another benefit of this exceptional product is that during restoration, SwitchSock can be cut open and spread similar to straw. It is perfect for light-duty sediment control like stream crossings or around laydown yards and will decompose quicker than other similar sock products.
If you think of popular tongue twisters, not only are they difficult to say five times fast, but they more often than not, don’t apply to anything useful in the real world.
