Types of Erosion Control Products

  • Certified weed-free straw made from rice and wheat breaks down quickly and enriches the soil as it decomposes.
  • Burlap-style jute mats are 100 percent biodegradable. They last for six months to two years depending on the construction method.
  • Single- and double-net excelsior blankets made from softwood shavings degrade after one to three years.
  • Coconut coir is one of the most durable options. It has an estimated lifespan of four to six years and excels on challenging terrain.
  • Polypropylene geotextiles are used on their own and as a stabilizer for straw and excelsior mats. They degrade slowly and eventually become part of the turf.

Erosion Control Mesh Cost Factors

Installation costs are determined by the size of the area, type of product and required level of stabilization. In general, products that last longer or feature multiple mesh layers cost more. Property owners should also factor in the cost of grading and tamping the area. For the mesh to function properly, the soil must be firmly compacted and free from large rocks and dirt clods. Additionally, installation costs depend on whether the area will be seeded or landscaped at the same time.

Hiring a Landscape Professional

Installing erosion control mesh may seem like a simple project, but each step from site preparation to product selection requires careful consideration. Construction professionals and landscape architects can recommend a suitable product and anchoring system based on the characteristics and slope of the site. Contractors can also assist with maintenance to ensure that the mesh remains intact until the roots of the lawn and landscape plants stabilize the area on their own.
