Greenfields K consists of an evenly distributed layer of untreated coir fibre captured between meshes of Polypropylene (PP) photodegradable or, biodegradable jute. The stitching thread is either synthetic or for the jute mesh version, biodegradable. BonTerra K is available unseeded or pre-seeded. It provides 100% ground coverage.

Recommended Application

For slopes of.1:1 or steeper. To prevent soil loss and establish planned vegetation on steep exposed slopes made up of highly erodible soil conditions, high intensity rainfall and high rates of water run-off. Suitable for embankments, drainage ditches, balancing ponds, waterways banks prone to fluctuating water levels, landfill or wherever soil protection and protective vegetation is required.

Durability

3 to 5 years, depending on prevailing site conditions, including temperature, moisture content, soil acidity etc.

 

Weight

This product can be manufactured to specification.

General

The range of Greenfields stitched blankets, K / SK / S, can be manufactured with or without integrated seed, mulch material and fertilizer. The pre-seeded products incorporate a biodegradable seed carrier which is stitched to the underside of the blanket.
          
Installation
          
Greenfields seeded blankets must be laid vertically on steep or longer slopes but may be laid horizontally on short or shallow inclines with the white seed carrier underneath and must conform closely to the slope geometry. The blankets must not be stretched. Prior to installation, the slope should be cleared of large or loose stones and hollows should be filled, to establish complete soil contact and allow the germinating seeds to successfully root and flourish. A minimum of 100mm soil depth is recommended to adequately support vegetation. The application of fertilizer is not usually necessary unless the blankets were installed on non-organic subsoil. The blankets should be pinned with 200mm mild steel pins at a recommended pinning average of 3 per square metre, depending on slope steepness. Pre-seeded blankets generally require more pins per square metre than the unseeded versions.
