Install coir geotextiles with ease on sites that require erosion control, soil stabilization, or for landscaping rain gardens.

Our DIY guide will take you through 5 hassle-free steps. 


Step 1

Prepare the area by clearing any debris, rocks, or vegetation, and ensure that the soil is prepped for plant growth.

Step 2

Dig a trench of at least 200mm depth around the whole area of installation and fill it back after the placement of the coir mesh within.

To further prevent sedimentation and movement of soil around the coir mesh installed areas, place coir mesh logs perpendicular to the direction of sediment flow.

When vegetated both the coir logs and coir geotextile fabric will provide the mechanical strength necessary to hold the soil in place, establishing natural borders and thereby preventing erosion and sedimentation.
