524 South Hwy 156 Justin, TX 76247 • 940-648-2751

A Measurably Better Erosion Control System

One or Two-Step Application for 100% Coverage
  • Conforms to the soil surfact
  • No special site preparation
  • Avoids tenting and under-rilling problems
  • Excellent germination results
  • Adheres to almost any soil surface
Enhanced Germination
  • Holds seeds and fertilizer firmly in place
  • Allows moisture, sunlight, and plants to penetrate
  • Won't rob the soil of nitrogen
Substantial Savings with Every Installation
  • Requies less labor and substantially less time to install
  • Soil Guard application is significantly less than conventional methods
  • Can be applied to sites where blanket-like protection was unaffordable
  Reduced Soil Erosion & Water Runoff
  • Dries into a flexible mat
  • Minimizes the impact of even heavy rain
  • Slowly releases moisture to the soil below
  • Remains cohesive and bonded to the soil
Fully Biodegradable
  • Non-toxic and fully biodegradable
  • Made from a blend of wood fibers, natural binding agent, and a mixture of organic and mineral activators
  • No plastic netteing, so it's safer for wildlife
  • No harmful residues
More Convenient Handling

  • Packaged in durable paper or plastic bags

Soil Guard / Blanket

Lab Test Confirm Soil Guard's All-Around Performance
Soil Guard was put to the test under controlled conditions at the nation's top erosion control laboratory. To judge Soil Guard's performance, the university-based lab ran the same series of tests used to evaluate other types of erosion control materials. In short, they subjected Soil Guard to enough simulated rainfall to cause failure in any other material. Yet remarkably, after the standard test length, Soil Guard showed no signs of failure. The test length had to be doubled before before Soil Guard showed any measurable soil loss. The results were dramatic by any measure.

Intended Use

Soil Guard has been designed to control superficial erosion caused by wind or falling rain on the treated area. Soil Guard controls erosion until permanent stabilizing vegetation can be established in disturbed areas commonly associated with state, county, or city D.O.T., Corps of Engineers/flood control, landfills, water retention ponds, landscaping, retaining wall structures, pipe and cable trenching, ski areas, golf courses, home lawns, and wetlands.

Non-Intended Use
  1. The prevention of landslides on soils that display deep seated instabilities or that are subject to survace peeling or frost heave.
  2. Extended or permanent erosion control in non-vegetative applications
  3. As a channel liner or in areas where poor site design concentrates overland water flow.
