About This Product

This excelsior blanket helps to promote germination of newly-planted seeds by protecting seeds from erosion. It is made of weed-free shaved aspen fibers and a fully-integrated degradable net that provides increased stability to the blanket. To use, simply roll it out over a seeded area and secure with pins. The excelsior fibers help to retain moisture while also covering the seed. Over time, the blanket materials will degrade, leaving you with virtually no cleanup.

This was exactly what I needed to establish a row of new grass. The installation was fine, the straw kept catching on the next row of straw, but it is manageable. The real problem arrived when, after a full Minnesota winter/spring, the plastic netting is still intact. It hasn't dissolved or degraded at all. Now I have a brand new lawn that has a near invisible net of plastic in it, making it impossible to mow without pulling the whole thing up. Anything would have been better than this trash.
    Easy to roll out and cut to size. I recommend using scissors as it won't pull the material. Works...
    Easy to roll out and cut to size. I recommend using scissors as it won't pull the material. Works great for preventing seed run off and provides good protection. Highly recommend using for new grass.

    This blanket was well worth the investment. I watered it daily for 2 weeks and already have 2 inches of new grass growing along most of the area affected.

    Product exceeded our expectations! Used as a seed germination mat! Much better quality than other straw mats we have used!

    This product is from a third party vendor. Vendor is non responsive
      Rolled out fairly easily. Held the ground real well during a very heavy rainstorm.

      The website is WRONG and confusing....While the title says 112 feet x4 feet in the details in specification and the check box to actually purchase the product say 180'. After estimating out the project and comparing this to other projects, it was a reasonable deal at 180 feet. Not so much at 112 feet. However, it was a good product and doing a fine job installed. Due to being short hundreds of feet, we bought straw locally and filled in where we did not have enough blanket. the seed under the blanket is doing much better. PS, this stuff is hard to cut. buying the 8' roll and cutting it would not be advised. In all fairness, HD customer service did a great job taking care of the complaint, and I am satisfied, but want the website to be correct Besides the value of the product being less than stellar at 112 feet, the mistake cost the project a bunch of extra time, money and coordination.
