Erosion control materials stabilize soils and prevent the extensive damage that can be caused by soil erosion. Disturbed slopes are susceptible to soil erosion until new vegetation develops a root system and surface coverage to mitigate the force of rainfall. Control erosion by anchoring jute netting or burlap to the slope surface with staples for immediate relief while waiting for vegetation or an erosion control crop to establish. The jute and burlap will eventually decompose on their own.
