Straw Blankets are used for erosion control and can aid in keeping soil and seeds in place while allowing dampness for germination. Used as a storm-water solution, straw blankets or erosion control blankets (ECB) are typically installed along a steep slope and can be used either short term (typically 3-months) or long term (up to 36-months). Here are some benefits:
Mainly used in a wide range of situations such as wind erosion, reducing rill, and sheet, a straw ECB can be placed on slopes, ditches, channels, and shorelines. Their erosion reduction is typically 90-percent or greater, making this an ideal solution to target problem areas. You can expect to see:
- Runoff volume reduction
- Job site control
- The runoff will not affect wildlife and private property
- Well-made and easy to install
- Superior water retention
- Aids in seed germination
Factors in determining which ECB is right for you include soil conditions, steepness, depth of flow, vegetation influence, and more.
