California-Based Company Supplies Soil Stabilizer That Protects The Environment While Stopping Hillside Erosion.

Sandbaggy is an established provider of top-grade landscaping and drainage control products based in California. For more than ten years, the company has been a trusted supplier by government institutions, private contractors, and individual homeowners. Some of its clients include the Red Cross, the US Marine Corps, the US Army, the National Park Service, and the Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service Department.

Among Sandbaggy’s numerous products include its Jute Netting Roll Erosion Control Matting. The specially-designed matting offers an ideal erosion solution for controlling soil erosion and water run-off during rainstorms.

As explained by the team at Sandbaggy, rainwater hits the ground at a speed of approximately twenty miles per hour. At this velocity, the water dislodges soil upon contact leading to soil displacement especially on sloping landscapes where vegetation has not yet rooted to hold the soil in place.

The matting solves this issue by acting like a protective layer that absorbs most of the shock from the rainwater. This reduces the impact of the water and stops erosion.

The product’s most notable feature is that it is 100% biodegradable. It is made from organic Jute plant fibers that eventually turn into natural fertilizer, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional plastic-based matting.

“Traditional erosion control blankets such as straw blankets are made of plastic. This plastic takes years to degrade and becomes microplastics, which pollute the environment,” said the Sandbaggy team.

They add, “Sandbaggy Jute Matting is made from 100% natural jute fibers. Zero synthetic material. Once installed, the jute protects the hillside from erosion for 6+ months. After, the jute slowly degrades into the soil and becomes fertilizer. All these advantages shows why our Jute Erosion Control Matting is the number one best-selling erosion control product on the internet.”

The Jute Netting Roll Erosion Control Matting meets and even exceeds all regulatory requirements of the DOT and State Law.

In addition to hillsides, the product may potentially be used for other applications such as landfills, embankments, drainage ditches, sand dunes, shorelines, wetland areas, wasteland restoration, and land re-vegetation.

The matting, also referred to as Erosion Control Blanket, measures four feet in width with lengths varying from 30 feet, 60 feet, and 225 feet. The 30-feet roll weighs about 8 lbs and covers 120 square feet. Depending on the conditions, the matting has a lifespan between six months to two years. To install, the matting simply needs to be unrolled and secured using 6 inch landscape staples placed two to three feet apart.
