BioD-Roll™ coir logs (coir rolls) are made from coir fiber densely packed into a tubular 2 in x 2 in (5 cm x 5cm) outer netting. These stronger coir logs provide initial structural stability for shorelines and streambanks by resisting wave action and flow velocity. The coir fiber core in BioD-Roll™ is an excellent medium for plant growth. After installing the coir logs, desired native plants should be planted on or around coir logs where plants can get sufficient water. With time, plants grow on coir logs. The sediment will be deposited around the coir logs, creating an excellent medium for riparian vegetation. The densely-packed coir logs last over five years providing erosion resistance and supporting establishment of sustainable vegetation.
