Hi, Scott - Since this product is low cost and is difficult and very costly to ship it is not available at all stores. It is, however, available if your local Home Depot store places a special order in packs of 12. Please check with your local store about that option. Thanks.
Plastic or nylon mesh
please use homedepot.com and select your local store. Pricing and availability is based on location. At my local store the wattle retails for $29.97
Heavy for one person, but I managed to pull it up my back slope.
Not really great for a water dam, controls erosion.
The netting outlasted the straw in my case. About 3 years probably. The guy that did my work anchored 2 of these (they were about 10 feet-don't know where he got them) with 3 foot long pieces of rebar.
You can cut them but yes, they’ll fall apart unless you want to sew netting around the cut edges.
These wattles, when saturated with clean water, will more than double in weight. They can weigh over 100 lbs. Moving saturated wattles is very difficult. You may want to take a look at the dictionary for the meanings and origin of the word wattle. The word has been in use since the 14th century. Hope this helps. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/wattle
You lay the wattle along a slope to prevent mud run off during a heavy rain... you merely need about 8pieces of 10'' rebar to nail it into the ground...it really works...they use them a lot in public parks to protect trails from getting overrun with sliding rocks and mud!!
The weight of this roll is 40 pounds.
