Compost is extremely effective and versatile. At Eco Express we specialize in superior, EPA-approved compost blankets and applying the many advantages of compost for more effective erosion/ sediment control solutions.
- EPA-approved solution
- 99% effective as erosion control
- Lower maintenance costs
- Removes pollutants from stormwater
- Slows the speed of run-off
- Reduces sheet and rill erosion
Compost’s porous structure promotes percolation, absorbs rainfall energy, and retains large volumes of water. This reduces/ slows run-off, eliminates soil compaction, and filters pollutants such as heavy metals, nitrogen, phosphorous, oil, fuel, and more.
Not just blankets… compost in other erosion/ sediment controls
At Eco Express we have been one of the pioneers in applying the advantages of compost to better meet a wider range of requirements.
Compost is an ideal material for meeting green standards on sustainability, performance and green purchasing (it’s organic, recycled, and renewable).
Improved soil and plant growth
- 100% soil coverage, including steep slopes
- Custom seed mix can be added
- Improves native grass establishment
- Reduces the need for irrigation
- Certified BioBased
- 100% organic, recycled and reusable
More effective than hydroseeding. Excellent water retention and stimulation of microbial activity increase nutrient availability for plants, improve soil structure, and create a microclimate for more successful seed germination.
Soil treatment – stabilize poor soil conditions and improve revegetation rates.
Steep slope stabilization – combining compost with geo-textile blankets or with living walls.
Silt filter socks – silt barriers for improved perimeter protection and filtration.
Bioswales/ basins – treat/ filter stormwater run-off and other liquid contaminants.
