Erosion Control

BonTerra erosion control blankets are made from coconut, straw fibres or blends of these natural fibres. Both the upper and lower sides of the BonTerra coir blankets are sewn by 100% organic mesh (Jute Net and Cotton thread). Alternatively, the erosion control blankets can be stitched thread and polypropylene mesh. The application of the BonTerra anti-erosion blankets will provide immediate protection of the soil and prevent the loss of seeds due to wind and rain erosion, and promote the establishment of vegetation. Coconut fibre absorbs and retains moisture which then enters the plants during dry periods. It also keeps moisture in the soil, thus contributing to the development of vegetation. BonTerra erosion control blankets are attached to the ground with steel or wooden dowels.

Jute Soil Saver

Jute soil saver is 100% bio-degradable, made out of Jute fibers, used for grass establishment and erosion control in natural re-vegetation sites, mine sites, sand hills, coastal areas with high winds, wetlands and riparian slopes. Its loosely-woven natural fiber retains moisture, enhancing seed germination while stabilizing seed and soil on slopes during heavy rains.

  • Natural revegetation sites
  • Mine Sites
  • Sandhills
  • Coastal areas with high winds
  • Wetlands and riparian slopes

Steel Sod Staples

Steel staples are typically used for securing landscape fabric especially to install erosion control applications including erosion control blankets, which are available in different shapes, sizes and materials

Other Erosion
Control Products

Hessian Cloth

Jute hessian cloth is made out of jute fibre, is 100% bio-degradable and is mainly used as a commodities packing material. It simultaneously functions as a backing layer to strengthen the products and as a value addition to the final product. Hessian cloth is especially used by furniture and mattresses manufacturers and the packaging industry, similarly used as an outdoor organic covering material. We are capable of supplying both lighter gsm and heavy gsm Hessian cloths including 46 gsm, 56 gsm Jute Leno Weave Net, light version of Burlap Bags, Sand Bangs, Jute Tubes. Some of the salient features of our Hessian Cloth are;

  • High tearing strength
  • Long lasting nature
  • Resistance against shrinkage
  • 100% biodegradable


VMAX Erosion control/ Erosionsschutzmatte/ Biomanta antierosiva

VMAX -Erosion control (erosionsschutz) mats are used to achieve optimal erosion control and greening success during the three development phases of erosion control systems. This specially designed structure anchors and strengthens plant roots in the soil, providing them strength for long-term stability. Thus, the overgrown soil surface is protected against the erosion effect of the running water in the long term.

Bonterra Straw Blanket/ strohmatte

Bonterra’s strohmatten product range provides different variants of the classic erosion control blanket made of straw. They all have a 100% straw layer and strengthen with a backing made of PP mesh or jute fabric and a PP or jute thread. All Bonterra strohmatten can also be supplied as a seed mat. For this purpose, a carrier paper with seeds is quilted with the overlay.

The service life of the Bonterra strohmatten is up to 18 months. It depends on the site conditions, soil, water and climate conditions as well as the risk of erosion on site. This is a natural product which can reach up to 100% biodegradable.

Bonterra Mulch Mat/ Mulchmatte/ Erosionsschutzmatte

The Bonterra’s Mulch mats are laid flat or in strips parallel to the planting. The mats can be easily cut with scissors. The ground is protected from drying out by wind and sun. Evaporation of soil moisture has been proven to be reduced by up to 50%. An optimal microclimate develops, which has a positive effect on the root growth of the planting. Due to the coconut fiber layer, excellent thermal insulation is also can be seen and the service life of the PE film is significantly improved. At the same time, the Bonterra’s mulch mat offers sustainable protection against rain, wind and water erosion immediately after installation, thus providing embankments and steep walls with the necessary support before planting. Planting measures can be carried out cost-effectively in combination with the Bonterra’s mulch mat and are easier to maintain in the long term. The soil is darkened and thus the germination of unwanted herbs and grasses is prevented.

Böschungsmatten / Embankment mats/ Faschine

These mats which are made from Coir or Straw can be used to prevent erosion in the slopes with higher water flow velocity. Also, these Böschungsmatten / Embankment mats can be used to grow the plants of these riverbanks. This will automatically prevent soil erosion. Faschine (Fascines) is made out from PP net which is similar to the coir logs. It is highly used for the embankment processes.

Begrünungsmatten/ Greening mats

Begrünungsmatten of Bonterra have been used for revegetation purposes. It can be made with coir fibre and straw fibre with the help of PP net or Jute net.

Bonterra wooden peg beech/ Bonterra Holzpflock Buche

Bonterra Holzpflock Buche is made of unbreakable and knot-free hardwood, finely sawn and left in its natural state. Knock in around the wooden peg more easily to be able to, the lower end is cut to a point. Bonterra Holzpflock Buche is used when attaching erosion control mats and fabrics in any slopes. Also as an Alternative, Bonterra Steel sod staples have been used to peg the erosion control blankets, geotextiles  and weed controlling mats. This Steel pins are more durable and stronger than the Bonterra Holzpflock Buche.
