GREENSOLUTIONS™ EROSION CONTROL LOGS

GreenSolutions Erosion Control Logs

GreenSolutions™ Erosion Control Logs, commonly called wattles, are a very effective sediment control measure. Available in a variety of sizes: 9", 12" and 18", additional diameters are available for more severe applications. Erosion Control Logs are contained by a biodegradable netting which is designed to last at least two construction seasons.

GreenSolutions™ Erosion Control Logs, when properly installed, reduce the rate of water flow, absorbing water and filtering sediment. A significant amount of sediment will drop out of the water behind the log during a rain event. Fiber is weed free and naturally biodegradable, enhancing the soil and helping vegetation become established. On steep slopes, logs used in conjunction with a properly designed and installed GreenSolutions™ erosion control blanket results in an effective BMP.

Advantages
  • Easy to transport and install
  • A low cost solution to sheet and rill erosion problems
  • Flexible enough to conform to most applications
  • Helps establish and store moisture for native vegetation
  • Plastic netting is biodegradable and straw becomes incorporated into soil
