When slopes and soil stability become a concern, the EcoBlanket® application is a far superior alternative to the erosion control blanket, straw mulching and hydroseeding. The EcoBlanket® is created by the Terraseeding™ process which, depending upon the degree of the slope, is usually a 50mm (2") layer of BioEarth™ that, along with the specified seed, is injected with a product called Microblend® at the time of application. Microblend® is a blend of natural and biodegradable organic ingredients that immediately stabilizes the BioEarth™, greatly improves the bond with the existing soil surface and provides long-term nutrient resources for the proliferation of bacteria and beneficial fungi. The EcoBlanket® provides stable growth and establishes permanent vegetation, whether it is grasses, wildflowers or a combination thereof.
An EcoBerm® installation eliminates the need for plastic silt fencing. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to erosion and sediment control which is highly effective and installed properly provides 100% ground contact. As it is made from BioEarth™, it eliminates the need for removal as it will naturally break down and eventually disappear leaving only a benefit to the soil where it was placed. In certain installations, the EcoBerm® is used in combination with the EcoBlanket® application for added effectiveness and protection. The EcoBerm® can be installed with or without seed and does not require ditching or reinforcement.
