Product Details

Pennington's Straw Blankets are an excellent way to establish and encourage new growth when laying seed. These wheat straw blankets enhance seed germination dramatically by protecting the seed, holding the seed in place, controlling weeds, and retaining moisture in neutral and challenging areas. Pennington Straw Blankets are the most effective method to preventing erosion and washout, particularly in areas with hills and slopes. They can also be placed around foundations to protect new masonry from mud splatter stain. Once your seed has begun to grow in, your Pennington Straw Blankets will naturally start to degrade, leaving you with amazing results!

          Q:Will it stay in place on a sloped hill or do you need to stake it in to the ground?

          Answer This Question

          A:  We put it on a slope. It’s preferable if you stake it down, we did. It stayed in place and you don’t have to worry about it sliding down when it rains. It worked great for us.

          by|Jul 20, 2021

            A:  I'd put in a few stakes. If I dries out, the netting will blow away on flat ground.

            by|Jun 24, 2021

            A:  If there is no wind, most of it will stay but if it was like mine and doesn’t unwind all the way then the bunch will catch the wind and move a little bit

            by|Apr 27, 2022

            A:  Hello, we do recommend to use stakes to keep the straw blanket in place on sloped or windy areas. Thank you.

              I believe the product will do what it's intended to, however, it is not easy to unroll and install. The directions are not very clear and the nylon webbing is difficult to work with. That being said, my new grass is growing, I'm a little concerned when the grass is high enough to mow, how the mower will handle the nylon webbing.

                Hay together, stay together
                The woven together hay is definitely what I needed to assist the grass to grow. For a new residential area, I don't need to have hay flying throughout the community.

                Nicer than loose straw for covering a small area. This is convenient for small areas, but getting bulk straw and plastic mesh to go over it would probably be cheaper and better for bigger projects. I live in a townhouse and had a small spot to cover and this was just the ticket.

                The straw blanket had been left out in the rain propped up vertically. When I got it home and unrolled it mostly all the straw fell out of the netting defeating the whole purpose of a blanket.

                My lawn has a steep slope making it difficult to grow grass. The straw blanket worked very well in preventing grass seed from washing away.
