• Over 99% Effective*
In a Certified Erosion Control testing facility, an EcoBlanket® has shown to be over 99% effective in reducing soil loss as an erosion control measure. These test results show that EcoBlanket® compares with the highest rated BMP's in the industry for erosion control in similar conditions.
• 100% Soil Coverage
As an erosion control measure, EcoBlanket® completely covers the denuded soil with a matrix of natural organic material active with beneficial microbes. Through pneumatic application, the EcoBlanket® conforms to the varied contours of the soil surface providing an interlocking blanket with the soil beneath, holding soil particulates in place.
• Can be Combined with a One Step Terraseeding™ Process
For establishment of permanent vegetation, whether it be grasses, wildflowers or native plants, the EcoBlanket® can be injected with seed during the application process. The EcoBlanket® material combined with Microblend® makes an ideal growing media for seed while providing immediate erosion control.
• 100% Organic, Recycled & Reusable
EcoBlanket uses no plastic materials in its construction. The fibrous matrix it forms with the help of the bonding capabilities of Microblend give the necessary structure needed without non-biodegradable reinforcements or netting. Made with recycled organics, the compost/mulch blend can be used as an earth friendly soil amendment at the completion of a project, or left as a permanent stabilizing organic layer to work into the topsoil over time.
Other Advantages of EcoBlanket®:
Establishes a buffer to absorb rainfall energy
Slows velocity of water run off, allowing natural percolation of rain water into soil
Improves existing soil structure and biology
Accessibility to remote and difficult to reach areas
