Flexterra is a type of erosion control blanket or hydraulically applied erosion control product (HECP) that offers several benefits in preventing soil erosion and promoting vegetation establishment. Some of the key benefits of using Flexterra include:
- Erosion Control: Flexterra provides effective erosion control by reducing soil erosion caused by wind and water. The blanket forms a protective layer over the soil surface, preventing the detachment and transport of soil particles.
- Enhanced Germination and Vegetation Establishment: Flexterra is engineered to create an optimal environment for seed germination and plant growth. It promotes moisture retention, protects seeds from harsh weather conditions, and enhances seed-to-soil contact, resulting in faster and more successful vegetation establishment.
- Slope Stabilization: Flexterra helps stabilize slopes and embankments by reinforcing the soil structure and preventing surface erosion. The blanket’s three-dimensional matrix interlocks with the soil, increasing slope resistance to erosion and promoting the establishment of vegetation roots.
- Water Absorption and Retention: Flexterra has the capacity to absorb and retain significant amounts of water, reducing the surface runoff and allowing moisture to penetrate the soil. This helps to prevent soil compaction and encourages deeper root growth, leading to healthier vegetation.
- Environmentally Friendly: Flexterra is made from organic materials, such as thermally refined wood fibers, which are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. As it decomposes over time, it adds organic matter to the soil, improving soil structure and fertility.
- Flexibility and Ease of Application: Flexterra can be easily applied using hydraulic mulch application equipment, allowing for efficient and uniform coverage over large areas. It conforms to the surface contours, adapts to varying slope angles, and can be sprayed on steep or irregular surfaces, providing flexibility in application.
- Longevity: Flexterra’s unique composition and structure make it highly resistant to wind and water erosion, providing long-term erosion control benefits. It remains effective even during heavy rain events, offering durable protection until vegetation is established.
- Reduced Maintenance: Once Flexterra is applied and vegetation is established, it requires minimal maintenance compared to other erosion control measures. The established vegetation helps maintain the stability of the soil and reduces the need for frequent reapplication.
It is worth noting that the specific benefits and performance of Flexterra can vary depending on factors such as site conditions, project requirements, and proper installation and maintenance. Consulting with erosion control experts or manufacturers can provide further guidance on the suitability and effectiveness of Flexterra for specific applications.
