BioNet® Biodegradable Erosion Control Blankets
BioNet 100% biodegradable erosion control blankets from North American Green provide effective and all-natural erosion control and vegetation establishment in an environmentally- and wildlife-friendly manner. All products in the BioNet series are composed of 100% organic, biodegradable materials and offer the following significant benefits:
Guaranteed, Complete Biodegradability
Unlike erosion control blankets with photodegradable plastic netting and yarn that depends on sunlight to degrade, BioNet blankets are completely biodegradable, leaving absolutely no synthetic residues on-site after vegetation is established.
Increased Erosion Control & Mulching Capabilities
BioNet blankets offer much greater erosion control and mulching capabilities than jute or coir netting alone, or than synthetic-netted counterparts. The jute netting and dense mulch layer in each BioNet product increases the product’s water absorption capacity, which aids in effective erosion control, soil temperature regulation, and moisture retention to promote seed germination and early plant growth.
Increased Strength & Structural Integrity
The jute top netting on all BioNet products is constructed using the leno weave method, which affords BioNet blankets superior mechanical stability, higher tensile strength, greater durability, superior fiber retention, and better erosion protection under severe conditions than many other “biodegradable” blankets which use easily distorted cross-lay netting.
Less Risk to Wildlife & Easy to Plant Through
The interwoven strands of the BioNet netting can move independently of each other. This flexibility minimizes the risk of accidental wildlife entrapment; it also enables the use of live stakes and the installation of trees, shrubs, and other plantings through the blanket without compromising erosion control performance.
