There are an infinite variety of erosion control techniques that can be employed depending on the situation. They include:

  • Erosion control mat or erosion control blanket
  • Silt fence
  • Straw crimping
  • Prairie sod (a coir matrix pre-planted with prairie plants)
  • Wattles made from straw, coir, or other materials
  • Live staking and facines
  • Polyacrylamide

Midwest Prairies is familiar with all of them and can install, however, we favor biodegradable systems. Certain synthetic systems can create wildlife hazards.
