Coir Logs can also be used as a planting medium. They can either be seeded or planted with seedlings and or grasses. As the plants and grasses mature, the coir log will break down into the natural landscape.
INSTALLATION OF COIR LOGS
Coir logs can be installed as a single log or can be installed end to end to create a continuous barrier.
Depending on the site conditions and storm water flow there are different installation methods applied for the Coir logs.
Where there is little or no storm water flow or where planting the logs with grasses etc is required the logs can be pinned to the ground using 300mm metal pins,
On a site where a minimum flow is evident timber stakes are used with four stakes per Coir Log.
Where the site has a high concentrated flow or unstable site conditions metal star pickets with caps are used with four pickets per Coir Log.
When installing the Coir Logs end to end to create a continuous barrier the Coir Logs are joined by wiring and or cable ties to ensure complete protection.
PLEASE NOTE : All installation methods used are in accordance with Protection of the Environment Operations Act (POEO) guidelines (The Blue Book)
