Temporary Erosion Control Blankets

Jute Netting

Jute Netting

This is a net made of jute that is laid and anchored over straw or other mulch to protect the mulch from wind and water damage. It reduces soil erosion and provides a good environment for vegetative regrowth. Jute is a biodegradable material that will eventually decompose and is not a threat to the environment.

Jute Netting Specifications

When is it used? This practice is often used on areas that may erode near structures such as homes, roads, and bridges. It is used on small, steep, disturbed areas. Jute can also be applied alone (without mulch) as an alternativeto straw or wood mulches on flat sites for dust control and seed germination enhancement. It should not be used alone where runoff quantities are expected to be high. The use of jute is not appropriate in all situations. Examples of when jute netting may not be appropriate include:

  • Steep slopes with sandy soils
  • Steep slopes with many rocks on the surface
  • Steep slopes with a significant amount of fire burned vegetation remaining
Check with the local Natural Resources Conservation Service office to find out if the use of jute netting is appropriate. Methods and Materials: The soil surface should be reasonably smooth. Rocks and other obstructions which rise above the level of the soil and mulch must be removed.
