We have a steep slope (2:1) that we're using an erosion control blanket on for initial stabilzation and then planting several shrubs and groundcovers. Has anyone ever seen a detail of installing plants (groundcovers, shrubs) in an rolled erosion control blanket? The only details I can find spec seeding, not actual container plants.
BTW - project is located on the east coast.
We have done this many times. With a standard soil cloth, the incisions are dictated by the size of hole you need to dig to plant.
I would second many of the other comments. Soil cloth will not stop the soil from eroding underneath, so the plants you choose will need to do this job. And any ground cover which spreads from the root should not be used with soil cloth.
