Ecomerchant Jute Netting is a lightweight but effective biodegradable net
It is used for the prevention of soil erosion. Ecomerchant Jute Netting has been specified for decades to provide economical protection to freshly cut or exposed slopes. Ecomerchant Jute Netting offers a high degree of soil retention, before biodegrading completely to add to the organic content of the soil after sufficient time has passed for natural vegetation to establish and protect the soil from future erosion.
Easy to Handle
Ecomerchant Jute Netting rolls cover more than 80m2 and weigh just over 42kg. Compared to folded and compressed bales of similar products which weigh typically more than 300kg, the rolls are far better suited to manual lifting and handling. Jute rolls are easy to install by simply unrolling down the slope, without any need for unfolding, also avoiding potential snagging and tangling.
Being easier to handle makes the product quicker to lay, making more efficient use of manpower. Jute rolls can be lifted and manoeuvred without the need for mechanical lifting aids.

The flexibility and ‘drape’ of an erosion control blanket refer to the extent to which that blanket can mould itself closely to the undulations and contours of the soil slope it has been installed to protect.
Ecomerchant Jute Netting has excellent flexibility and soil retention performance compared to other products as highlighted by research from the Department of Soil Science, Cranfield University.
Typically fixing pins should be used at a minimum of 2per m2. On steeper slopes or more exposed sites pins per square metre can be up to 6 per m2. Sufficient pins should be used to ensure maximum contact with the soil beneath and ensure that wind cannot lift the netting from the soil surface.
As an extra precaution, when grass is the chosen finish a grass seed mix in a suitable substrate can be broadcast over the installed netting to ensure improved contact and faster establishment.

Our thanks to Lucy Conochie for sending us the pictures of installed netting; Lucy is an experienced professional gardener she used our Ecomerchant Jute 500 netting to stabilise an exposed bank in a garden in Cornwall, we look forward to next year’s pictures when the planting is established. Lucy, like many other designers, are keen to use sustainable and natural means to solve garden design problems, you can see more of what Lucy does on her web site http://lucyconochiedesign.com/
The techie bit:
Each year Jute crops are sustainably managed and from seeding to harvest, one hectare absorbs as much as 15 tonnes of CO2. Because Ecomerchant Jute Netting is made of 100% jute, the CO2 footprint of a project can be reduced by more than 3kg CO2 for every m2 installed
Even the fixing pins are made from recycled products and will completely biodegrade over time
