Installation

Live stakes:

Plant with buds up and chiseled end down, with 80%

of the stake underground.

Space 3 to 6 feet apart, or as specified.

Fascines:

Install fascine bundles parallel to the site’s slope to slow water. The

>>

Fascines can also be installed above the water line, parallel to

slope contours to slow runoff and prevent erosion.

>>

If installing above the waterline, install in a shallow trench 1/2 to

1/3 the diameter of the fascine.

If using multiple fascines, place them so the ends are touching.

>>

They can be anchored in place with hardwood stakes, live cuttings,

or re-bar.
