Advantages Erosion Control

Hydro-seeding, straw biomats, jute, coconut, etc. or Viresco?
The comparison!

The pre-sown soil erosion matting simplifies the turf grass creation and guarantees an effective erosion control in a very short period.

In the case of non-pre-sown biomats, it is necessary to spread the seeds below, before laying or above, after laying, or to carry out hydroseeding.

With Viresco it is not necessary to use biodegradable anti-erosive nets. The Viresco pre-seeded biotextile simplifies the settlement of the lawn and the revegetation of the slopes and guarantees immediate erosion control in a single operational phase with great effectiveness and lower costs.

Erosion Control and Vegetation Establishment in ONE SINGLE STEP!

Discover the advantages of VIRESCO compared with the traditional grass covering and soil erosion prevention systems.

The Advantages respect to hydroseeding

Surface stabilisation functionAfter the grass turf developmentAt the time when the biotextile is laid down
External agents action (extreme rains and massive irrigations)It can compromise the implementation positive outcomeIt can resist to any atmospheric event without losing the seeds
Applications in places difficult to reachThe use of hose extensions or mobile platforms is requiredLight and easy to carry anywhere
Laying methodIt requires specialised manpowerAnyone can do it in an easy and fast way
Small areas implementationsToo expensiveAlways suitable and affordable
Attacks by birds and insectsIn several conditions (e.g. landfills) they can eat the seedsThe seeds are well protected and remain longer in the biotextile weft
Chemical or physical residuesIt requires the application of glues and chemical productsFully biodegradable
Implementations on very steep surfacesHydromulching is necessary and/or at least two applicationsNo additional features required. Lower implementation costs
Visual impactYou need to wait for the grass growth or you can use additional aesthetic productsThe biotextile comes in green colour so improves immediately the surface to be covered
Erosion control on very steep slopesIt should be coupled with a mat, usually an erosion control jute netUsing just a single product cuts the costs

Advantages of Viresco compared with traditional blankets

Carriage methodsThick, stiff and heavyLight and easy to carry
Laying methodThey must be fastened to the soil with several strong anchoring meansIt needs just watering or a small amount of pegs
Handling stageThe seeds tend to move or leakIt keeps seeds and fertilizers firmly in place in every situation
Surface run-offs and scouring eventsErosion due to the formation of underlying cavities, because of the stiffness and high thicknessHarmless thanks to the power of Viresco to adhere firmly to the ground as a protective film
The plants can put down roots and grow uniformlyThis is often obstructed by the mats high thicknessViresco guarantees an excellent cover uniformity
Soil SowingIt is necessary to provide for the sowing on the soil below, before the installation, or above the blanket after the installation, or perform an hydro-seeding.Everything happens in a single operational phase, with great efficiency and lower costs

The pre-sown biotextile Viresco

All seed mixtures used are designed according to the customer’s needs,
environmental conditions, climate period, and maintenance possibilities.
All the essences are selected high-quality varieties with low growth habit to limit the required cuts.
