Looking for input for temporary slope stabalization solutions. I want to establish grasses along this one slope (a little steeper than 2 to 1), but until they get rooted, I think I will need some kind of fabric or netting or something to help hold the plants and the soil in place. My hope would be that eventually this thing goes away though, preferably by decomposing. The slope is not very tall, maybe only 5′ max. Any suggestions?
Thanks Mark. Do you have experience using this product? If so, about how long did it take for it to decompose? Do you think it would be possible to mulch overtop of it (for aesthetic reasons)? I am in zone 6b.
In working on reclaimation projects in my undergrad, I know Coconut fiber matting is a popular choice, as it will hold the soil, let grasses etc grow through it, and break down and fertilize the soil in the long run.
