Erosion Control Wattles and Logs

Wattles and erosion control logs trap sediment, control runoff and prevent erosion. Most erosion control wattles are filled with a natural material and are wrapped in a synthetic netting.

Curlex Sediment Logs, Straw Wattles, Compost Filter Sock, and Coir Logs are all examples of erosion control wattles. These erosion control products are used for the following applications:

Types of Erosion Control Logs

We supply a variety of wattles in order to provide options for fill, sock and size.

Compost filter sock for perimeter control on residential construction project

Compost Filter Sock

Compost Filter Sock is a flexible and dynamic erosion control log. Our Filter Sock is filled 100% recycled wood chips and wrapped in a synthetic netting. The netting is porous for runoff to filter through the product, but woven tightly enough that wood chips are held within its structure.

Compost Filter Sock is distinguished by its customizable sizes. Choose from a ten-foot pre-cut wattle or a continuous pallet up to 200 feet long. The continuous pallet allows you to custom cut each wattle to the size you need. Continuous pallets are also great for long continuous runs for perimeter control.

Applications

  • Perimeter control
  • Inlet protection
  • Slope interruption
  • Check dam

Product Features

  • Wood chip fill
  • Dynamic sizing
  • Heavy weight wattle stays put
