CoirLogs provide erosion and wave
control structures in riparian zones, and sediment capture in
drainage lines and swales.
CoirLogs are made from 100%
biodegradable materials. CoirLogs can be used to
stabilise riparian zones while vegetation is established.
They can also be laid around drains, grates, and on steep slopes to
reduce water velocity, reduce erosion, and collect silt.
Coir is the fibre obtained from the husks of
coconuts, is biodegradable, and is a by-product of the coconut
growing industry. CoirLogs are an energy efficient
and low-toxic alternative to other erosion prevention, which
involves the use of plastics, or the erection of stone retaining
