Stop Soil Erosion in its Tracks!

Nature's Powerful Solution for Landscape Erosion Control

Our straw erosion control blankets are crafted from 100% natural straw, a biodegradable and environmentally friendly material. The dense network of straw fibers within the blanket slows water flow velocity, reducing the risk of surface erosion caused by wind, rain, and irrigation. This allows for optimal seed germination and establishment of vegetation, ultimately stabilizing your soil and preventing future problems.

The Green Earth Transportation Advantage

We offer a variety of straw erosion control blankets to suit the specific needs of your project in Toledo, Ohio and the surrounding communities. Our blankets are:

  • Durable: Made with high-quality, long-fiber straw for extended performance.
  • Easy to Install: Lightweight and readily adaptable to uneven terrain.
  • Eco-Friendly: Biodegradable and decompose naturally over time, leaving no harmful residues.
  • Cost-Effective: A practical and affordable solution for erosion control.

Beyond Erosion Protection

Straw erosion control blankets offer additional benefits beyond soil stabilization. They:

  • Suppress Weed Growth: The dense straw layer helps suppress unwanted weeds, promoting healthy grass establishment.
  • Maintain Soil Moisture: By reducing water runoff, straw blankets help retain soil moisture, benefiting newly planted vegetation.
  • Improve Aesthetics: Straw blankets create a visually appealing natural barrier, enhancing the overall look of your landscape project.
