why use coco logs?

Coco logs are long knotted coir nettings filled with coir fibre. Coco logs are widely used on stream banks, sea shores and lake shores for controlling the sand slide. It is also used in desert areas for controlling sand overcomes.

Coco logs can be cut into sections and stacked for stream bank stabilization, fluid containment, or used separately for check structures.

Available in a variety of lengths and densitys for different applications

coco logs offer:

  • 100% Natural Materials
  • High Tensile Strength
  • 100% Biodegradable
  • Adds Fertility to the Soil after Biodegradation
  • Excellent Planting Medium
  • High Water Absorbency
  • Easy To Install
  • Eco-Friendly
  • Wildlife Safe
applications for coco logs

For storm water control, the logs can be used to slow down the velocity of storm water run-off, thus stabilizing slopes.

In shoreline/stream channel applications, the logs are resistant to the forces of water. Not only great for stabilizing shorelines, they can provide bedding where the seedlings and/or cuttings are inserted into log with sediment. As the coconut fiber log biodegrades, the plants develop a well established root system in the shoreline sediment to retain the soil in place.

Great for use in catch basin protection, keeping unwanted pollutants from entering into sewer systems.
