Vegetated erosion control mats for site stabilization

Abstract:

We grow grasses directly on erosion control mats in the nursery and then transport the sod to sites where establishing permanent vegetation is difficult due to adverse human or environmental factors. The vegetated erosion control mats system is a simple, viable method that can be effectively used to provide immediate erosion control and visual appeal.
