Sorry Erosion Blanket is Local Pickup Only
Now you can prevent erosion, assist in germination and protect seedlings with Curlex Blankets. This material combines a dense mat of curled and seasoned Aspen wood excelsior with a tough, photodegradable plastic mesh. They are designed to halt erosion and will remain in place even the roughest terrain.
Curlex blankets provide the ideal ground conditions for fast turf development. When properly installed, they retain moisture, control surface temperature fluctuations if the soil, conform to the terrain, protect against sun burn-out and break up raindrops to slop erosion.
Properly prepare, fertilize and seed area to be covered before blanket is applied. When the blanket is unrolled, netting should be on top and fibers in contact with the soil over the entire area. In ditches, apply blankets either horizontally or vertically to slope, butt end and sides, and then staple. It is not necessary to dig check slots, anchor ditches or bury ends of blankets unless called for in design specifications.
Use wire staples 0.091” in diameter, “U” shaped with legs 4”-6” in length and 1” crown. Size and gauge of staples used will vary with soil conditions. Drive staples vertically into the ground. Use four staples across at the start of each roll. For slopes installation, continue to staple along the length of the roll at six-foot intervals. For ditch liner, staple along the length of the roll at four-foot intervals. Another row of staples in the center of each blanket should be alternately spaced between each side for either slope or ditch. Use a common row of staples on adjoining blankets.
The recommendation is between .6 staples/ square yd. and 1.9 staples/ square yd. depending on the slope and velocity of water for erosion control.
