Straw Stabilisation


This patent method of erosion control makes use of bio-degradable straw, pressed into the soil so that wind erosion does not affect construction sites and building levels. The straw is incorporated and ploughed into the sand with specialised machinery pulled behind a tractor. The straw stalks act as a natural wind shield preventing further dust and sand blowing away. It is a temporary dust control method. This procedure can also be combined with grass seeding to prevent grass seeds from blowing away or drying out.

The method via machine is only possible on flat surface area. Sloped areas require manual labour of straw stabilisation.
