RootCarpet™ is a vegetated mat; thick sections of pre-vegetated coir fiber enclosed in a woven coir blanket that helps keep roots together and soil in place until establishment. It is available in 3 feet wide and 15 feet long sections.
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.
