|email@example.com RootCarpet ™
RootCarpet™ consists of thick sections of pre-vegetated coir fiber
enclosed in a woven coir blanket that helps keep roots together
and soil in place until establishment. Because the developed roots
actively seek the soil, RootCarpet™ facilitates quick establishment
across relatively large areas. It is especially good for wetlands and
areas with moving water, and it is effective in controlling weeds.
All RootCarpet™ is grown on a contract basis. It can also be custom
grown with plant species according to specification. To establish
additional shrub and herbaceous vegetation, live stakes and fascines
can be driven through it.Specifications

Final grade should be smooth, free of rocks, sticks, and existing
vegetation. Do not install RootCarpet™ mats on hard, compacted
RootCarpet™ mats must have good soil contact and be in contact
with water at the normal water level.
If installing in a stream channel, unroll RootCarpet™ mats starting
downstream, working upstream. Lay mats loosely and
DO NOT stretch. Overlap RootCarpet™ mats similarly to roof
shingles, 6 inches on ends and 4 inches on sides.
If installing in conjunction with vegetated coir logs, RootCarpet™
should be in direct contact with coir logs.
Securely anchor with 8- to 12-inch steel turf staples or hardwood
stakes as needed to maintain direct contact with soil.
