Coir Logs - Erosion Control
EcoLog® Coir Logs
EcoLog® are coir logs made from 100% natural coconut fibre compacted into an outer mesh of bristle coir twine. They incorporate biological, ecological and engineering aspects of erosion control into their design, producing a structure, that when vegetated controls shoreline and streambank erosion.EcoLog® stabilises the bank and permit the establishment of vegetation. The coir fibre accumulates sediment and biodegrades as plant roots develop and can become the stabilising element.
EcoLog® are fully biodegradable within 5-10 years, decomposing into a natural medium that promotes plant growth. As this happens a well established root system develops that will blend into aquatic environments and successfully hold banks and shorelines in place which help prevent further erosion by diminishing the force of waves and stream flow. Once wetland plants are established, EcoLog® also provide a natural habitat for wildlife.
