Erosion Control Mat
This erosion mat is a lightweight open structure, with a 90%+ open matrix for soil vegetation growth. The open matrix is the most effective design for supporting hillside soil stabilization as both the soil and roots have space to intertwine through the mat. Also known as a Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are great for applications such as channels, hillside slopes, and even under grass sod.
The goal of this Erosion Control Mat is to encourage grass and vegetative growth on hillsides and reduce the wind and water run-off to protect the budding vegetation. Once the vegetation takes hold then the roots will help support the hillsides and prevent soil erosion.
