Customer Questions & Answers

How do you secure the mat to the ground? Do they sell stakes or something. Thanks!

Asked by: John
Use sod staples. They are sold by the box I think you get like 100. Best way to drive them into the ground is a mallet.

Does this blanket act as mulch? ie. Does it block weeds effectively?

Do you need to use wood chip mulch on top of it to also block weeds and/or look good? If yes, how many inches? Thank you!
Asked by: CTgardener
Since the product is made out of naturally biodegrading straw and a very thin biodegradable poly (1 year), it will to a very small extent act similar to a mulch, but should not be considered as a mulch alternative.

Howdy Scooter, This material is much weaker than shade cloth or burlap which is the commonly used material for hay bale blinds. Happy Hunting, Coach Dave

8 ft. x 112.5 ft. Polypropylene Single Net Straw Erosion Control Blanket is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 33.

The placement of straw within the sheets isn't consistent. There are numerous areas where the straw is patchy or non-existent while other areas are relatively full. It can't be settling during shipping because the product is too tightly wound. I also found that the further you get in the roll the more consistent and full the placement is. Once you unroll it, there is no shaking it to get more even placement of the straw, it simply falls through the mesh on to the ground. Don't let the product picture fool you, the product you receive is no where near as full as shown.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watch out for Small Animals! Great product, easy installation. My grass germinated in about 8 days using these and plenty of water. My only hesitation on this product is that the green plastic mesh has snared multiple small animals in our yard (we live in a pretty wooded area). I've cut out multiple garden snakes from the mesh, some had strangled themselves already, others I was able to rescue. I hope the mesh degrades quickly or the effort to rip it all out will have me come back and re-review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two products in one! I have a slight incline in my backyard which makes it hard to keep seed in place during growth. I ordered the 8ft x 112.5ft and it covered my whole backyard with some left over! The UPS guy left the roll at my door and ran off but I was able to carry it to my backyard on my own as well as lay it down on my own. Hardest part was cutting to fit the lawn but that was only in a couple of areas. My grass seed is growing and I found that this blanket also can be used to catch snakes! EGADS!! The netting caught two black snakes that were dead when I saw them. I feel horrible for the snakes, not a nice way to exit the world! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to keep the blanket down forever or if I remove it once the grass starts to grow. If anyone knows, let me know :) - Anyway, it seems to be doing what it is meant to do and I would recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from my experience with this purchase I bought 5 bundles of this product. Of the 5, three of them ripped by the wind after installing and blanket lost its straw coverage for lot of my seeded areas. Though I used steel blanket pins to hold the product, they couldn't withstand heavy winds. But 2 blankets stayed well. They sustained wind which blew between 22 to 26 mph. I guess they are not consistent in quality. Moreover, I'm not convinced with my purchase. I thought I picked right line after some research. I rate 2 out 5 for this product as only 2 blankets survived the weather. I request the product makers to attach some tag to unroll the product easily. It was little hard to find the head to start unrolling

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought ten rolls of this stuff to help start my yard on the sloped sides of my house. We have a walkout basement and I was concerned about erosion. This has worked perfectly. I have grass growing on the slopes and am now going to buy twenty more rolls for other areas. It's too windy where I'm at to use regular straw and these are the cheapest option I have found anywhere on the internet. Make sure you have enough staples for these. I overlapped the edges to cut down on the staple use and still used 500-750 staples for the ten rolls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have, for large areas I recently planted a hill with prairie grass and wild flowers, so I figured putting down an erosion blanket would be faster and better than using straw bales and having loose straw all over the hill, considering it has to be in place all winter. It would have definitely been easier, with a second person, but I had no problems laying the blanket, by myself (other than a sore back). The hardest part was cutting pieces to fit the remaining area to be covered, once the main strip was laid. I did run out, but I think with better planning and less overlapping (and a second person), I might have been able to cover it all. If I ever do something like this, again, I will be buying another of these erosion blankets. This erosion blanket is well worth the money. I highly recommend getting about 100 landscape staples, to hold the blanket down. As I was working, the wind picked up and rolled up part of the blanket I didn't have stapled, yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recently Installed First off, great product for the price. Most comparative rolls were nearly twice as much. this has a nice layer of straw and seems quite durable during install. Covered about 4500 sq ft area with about 500 staples, found those cheaper elsewhere, it was amazoning. Using for seeding product, holds moisture well, blanket is doing its job, hopefully seeds will do theirs. Does unroll very easy except for about the last 20 feet or so. One person can do the job, but two people make the last part of the roll much less frustrating. Take care when cutting the blanket. It will seemed cut, but some of the fiber strands don't cut all the way through, so check befor you walk off with removed material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very effective; easy to install The erosion blanket is easy to install and quite effective. I was able to install it by myself relatively easily although having a second person help would make the task much faster and easier. I installed it about 2 months ago on the banks of a newly dug pond and with recent 4-5 inches of rain I was pleased to see it controlled the erosion and had lots of grass seed germinating underneath.
