Function

Jute Mesh is an organic, flexible, loose-woven jute ‘cargo-net’ mesh used for erosion control and seed establishment. An inexpensive and flexible product, easily separated so as to fall around existing vegetation. The coarse nature of the fibres, assists in capturing windblown soil and native seeds.

Jute Mesh is ideal for areas where ‘natural revegetation’ is being encouraged, such as sand dunes. It can be used in conjunction with local brush and twigs to help in the capture of soil and seed, preventing soil erosion.

Applications

  • Grass and vegetation establishment
  • Swail drains
  • Sand dunes
  • Coastal sites
  • Mulch retention
  • Natural regeneration sites
  • Wind erosion
  • Mine sites
  • Steep batters
  • Rough sites
  • Not suitable on highly erodable or high water flow sites.

Advantages

Cost Effective

Jute Mesh provides economical erosion treatment, applicable to large scale land areas.
Jute Mesh can also be used over the top of mulch on steep batters so as to retain the mulch on the slope.

100% Natural

Jute Mesh adds organic matter to the soil as it degrades.
