I've been looking for this erosion cloth everywhere. I'm renovating my garden, which is on a slope, and need to get rid of lots of ivy. Once I pull up the ivy, and block regrowth, I'm going to need something to counteract erosion on the slope.
GRAEME B on May 26, 2017
My lakeshore bank is eroding and I'm trying to plant native grasses. The high water level and wave action is wiping out the plants. They need help!
ELIZABETH M on May 18, 2017
I have a steep slope and mulch gets washed away before too long. So now I'm going to plant a thick ground cover plant to help with erosion control. I'll be spreading seeds over the entire hill. This jute mesh will help keep the seeds in place while they grow and will prevent further soil erosion while I'm waiting for the ground cover.plants to fill in. By the time this jute biodegrades, the plants will take over its job of controlling soil erosion.

LAURA M on Feb 20, 2017
Incredibly reliable material when establishing a new lawn from seed. i used this material a couple of years ago when placing grass seed to a steep slope and it held all materials in place beautifully. I am a firm believer that this material trumps placing 'hay' straw down as a barrier.
