Weed-Free Wood Mulch Erosion Control Logs by EcoWattle

Weed-free wood mulch erosion control logs by EcoWattle avoid intrusive plant contamination. EcoWattles qualify as weed-free because our wood mulch is ground and screened from fully de-barked, fresh cut trees. The de-barking process removes all exterior exposed surfaces prior to grinding and screening. The screening process removes virtually all pieces of anything smaller than 1/2” length or thickness. The totality of the process virtually eliminates the chance of seeds remaining in the wood mulch when we receive it. We take care during the production process to keep it that way and we stretch wrap the finished pallets prior to shipping. Unless something unusual occurs during transit, EcoWattles should arrive meeting the USDA weed-free guidelines.

EcoWattles are a superior erosion control log - also called erosion control wattle, filter sock. EcoWattles are also termed sediment control wattles or sediment control logs. EcoWattles are sediment control wattles / erosion control logs made with a wood mulch / wood chip core / fill material and UV degradable netting or natural (tencel) fiber fully biodegradable netting. Erosion control logs / erosion control wattles / sediment control logs / sediment control wattles with wood chip core offer superior performance compared to straw erosion control logs and sediment control logs / erosion control wattles, silt fence, hay bales and straw bales. EcoWattle is a superior erosion control log / erosion control wattle / sediment control wattle / sediment control log and is the smart choice for inlet protection, perimeters, streams, lakes and rivers. EcoWattles are erosion control logs / erosion control wattles / sediment control logs / sediment control wattles for controlling storm water runoff on road projects, commercial construction sites, residential construction sites, pipelines, well pads, mine reclamations and power plants.The use of an erosion control wattle / erosion control log / sediment control wattle / sediment control log is much preferred environmentally when compared to silt fence - the wattle / log not only works better but doesn't leave waste that needs to be disposed of at a land fill. EcoWattles are often compared to compost filter socks or erosion eels but are better sediment filters and are easier to handle. EcoWattle erosion control logs in a check dam configuration are a lower cost, safer alternative to Type 1 and Type 2 Rock Filter Dams
