This more environmentally sensitive bank protection can provide a high quality and economical form of erosion control. This is more suitable for smaller watercourses or sites where low usage and wear will occur. However, when used with coir rolls the benefit of its ‘open pocket’ structure enables vegetation to grow through the protection and therefore create excellent habitat and is therefore used on more ecologically sensitive sites.


Through sensitive backfilling and seeding the original bank can quickly re-establish and flourish. We are more than happy to advise on the best backfill and seed mixes for your requirements.
