Irish Native Mix
(We recommend sowing this at a rate of 1.5-3g per m² – so ideally you are looking at 2 kilos per 1000 sq/m)
CoirMesh™ coir erosion control blankets are open weave, pure coconut, meshes that offer the strongest and most durable natural fibre surface erosion control solutions available. They are therefore recommended on sites where erosion forces/climate are harsh, or plants slow to establish.
Typical applications for coir meshes include riverbanks and drainage channels (where flow rates and stresses are high); exposed sites such as uplands or coasts; wildflower restoration (because plants require longer to develop); and recreation areas (as abrasion is high).
CoirMesh™ coir erosion control matting effectively controls soil loss and promotes sedimentation; creates a favourable micro climate to promote growth; shelters seedlings against windrock; decomposes slowly to provide prolonged protection; and their high tensile strengths can be utilised to offer temporary soil reinforcement.
A wide range of coir mesh densities, and patterns (including looped piles), are available to provide the ideal balance between surface protection and the requirements of flora.
Typical Applications – Holding down turf and heather brashings. General erosion control of banks and slopes. Erosion control alongside rivers, streams, swales and run-off ditches. Extreme conditions
