EcoBlanket is a special compost/mulch ground cover combined with an additive (Microblend). This product is blown with our Blower Trucks to control and reduce soil erosion. An EcoBlanket stabilizes the soil, prevents splash, sheet and rill erosion and removes suspended soil particles and contaminants from water moving off the site and into adjacent waterways or storm water systems.
The EcoBlanket is rated one of the most effective methods available for stopping erosion in its tracks. EcoBlanket replaces the natural layer of humus that already protects our undisturbed soils. Injected with Microblend, the EcoBlanket has increased structural integrity along with the ability to aid in the degradation of hydrocarbons that can be found on construction sites. EcoBlanket is easily installed in a one step, low impact pneumatic process that can conform to about any terrain.
Over 99% Effective
In a Certified Erosion Control testing facility, an EcoBlanket has shown to be over 99% effective in reducing soil loss as an erosion control measure. These test results show that EcoBlanket compares with the highest rated BMP’s in the industry for erosion control in similar conditions.
100% Soil Coverage
As an erosion control measure, EcoBlanket completely covers bare soil with a matrix of natural organic material, active with beneficial microbes. Through pneumatic application, the EcoBlanket conforms to the varied contours of the soil surface providing an interlocking blanket with the soil beneath, holding soil particulates in place.
Can be Combined with a One Step Terraseeding Process
For establishment of permanent vegetation, whether it be grasses, wildflowers or native plants, the EcoBlanket can be injected with seed during the application process. The EcoBlanket material combined with Microblend makes an ideal growing media for seed while providing immediate erosion control.
Organic, Recycled & Reusable
EcoBlanket uses no plastic materials in its construction. The fibrous matrix it forms with the help of the bonding capabilities of Microblend give the necessary structure needed without non-biodegradable reinforcements or netting. Made with natural organics, the compost/mulch blend can be used as a soil amendment at the completion of a project, or left as a permanent stabilizing organic layer to work into the topsoil over time.
Other Advantages of EcoBlanket:
• Establishes a buffer to absorb rainfall energy
• Slows velocity of water run off, allowing natural percolation of rain water into soil
• Improves existing soil structure and biology
• Accessibility to remote and difficult to reach areas
