According to Southern Living Garden Book, to control erosion on a slope until ground cover will grow, first lay down 3-4 inches of pine straw, then cover with the jute erosion control cloth. Cut holes in the cloth to plant the ground cover. By the time the jute rots away, plants should cover the slope. Sounds like a good plan to me. I appreciate the good picture of what I'm ordering. Thanks Online Fabric Store!!!

A shopper on Mar 16, 2017

We have snakes and small wildlife getting caught in plastic netting in erosion control blankets. Will this allow trapped wildlife to squeeze through if they are caught in it?
Michael O on May 9, 2017
