Wattles & Logs

Straw Wattles & Logs

In recent years, Straw Wattles & Straw Logs have gained popularity as an economical, easy to use and effective method of sediment control. Our Straw Wattles & Straw Logs are made of 100% agriculture certified weed free straw fibers, stuffed into tubes of extra heavy duty, UV stabilized netting. When installed on slopes “on contour”, Wattles act as sediment filter barriers, reducing surface sheet erosion and capturing sediment. They are available in a variety of lengths, with a finished diameter of about 9″. With their diameters of 12″ and larger, Logs are designed to be used where in the past, one would have used straw/hay bales. Temporary Ditch Checks and Inlet Protection are common applications for Straw Logs.

  • Easy to Install and Maintain
  • Made of Degradable Materials

The 12″ diameter sten logs are approved for use as a WI DOT ‘ditch check.’

Made of degradable materials, Straw Wattles & Logs can often be left in place, saving the cost of removal and disposal.

Curled Wood Fiber Wattles & Logs

We also offer Logs & Wattles made of wood fibers. Like our straw wattles and logs, Curled Wood Excelsior Fibers are stuffed into tubes of heavy duty, UV stabilized netting. Although intended for similar applications, there are some character differences between our curled wood fiber wattles & logs vs. our straw wattles & logs. Wattles & Logs made of curled wood fibers will be about 25% heavier than those made of straw, and the curled wood fibers tend to be more absorbent than straw. Costs differences are negligible, and in most areas, specifications allow for either straw or curled wood fiber wattles & logs to be used.

  • Improved Alternative to Straw/Hay Bales
  • Made of Degradable Materials

The larger diameter and longer lengths of Logs make them a better replacement for straw/hay bales.
