Erosion and Sediment Control Turf
Native grasses produced as a turf type product for sediment and erosion control. Our native grass (turf) mix is a blend of the following:
Warm Season Grasses
Elymus canadensis - Nodding Wild Rye
Schizachyrium scoparium - Little Bluestem
Bouteloua curtipendula - Side-Oats Grama
Sporobolus heterolepis - Prairie Dropseed
Cool Season Grasses
Poa pratensis - Kentucky Bluegrass
Festuca arundinacea - Turf Type Tall Fescue
The predominant mix of warm season grasses with a small percentage of cool season grasses ensures establishment of the turf in any growing season. The 24" x 54" piece of turf also contains reinforcement netting to help with establishment especially on very steep slopes. Just pin the turf in place using conventional sod pins and within 7-14 days you will have established sediment and erosion control, no waiting on hydro-seeding to germinate.
The Reinforcement Netting
Our special turf reinforcement netting configuration is designed to help grass seedlings germinate and grow in a uniformly strong structure. The roots intertwine with the durable mesh and prevents separation from the soil when rolled during harvest. This reinforcement netting also helps stabilizes the native turf mix while establishment is taking place making it an ideal sediment and erosion control product.
