Straw Wattles

Volm offers Straw Wattles, an effective and economical alternative to silt fence and straw bales for sediment control and storm water runoff.

Cylinders of recycled, compressed, 100% agricultural straw, Straw Wattles are wrapped in tubular, UV-stabilized black synthetic netting. Straw Wattles can be placed and staked along the contour of newly constructed or disturbed slopes. Their use to capture and retain sediment is an EPA-recognized best management practice (BMP). Fertile topsoil, organic matter, and native seeds are trapped behind straw wattles and provide a stable medium for germination.

Straw Wattles also retain moisture from rainfall, aiding the growth of tree seedlings planted to their up-slope side.
Applying our years of experience with woven poly meshes to the challenges facing the other industries just makes sense. The same top-quality mesh and poly (polyethylene) fabrics and specialty products can be used for erosion control (e.g. erosion control blankets, silt fencing, sand bags, etc.) and construction sites (e.g., privacy, theft management, and safety). Many applications are also helpful for agricultural and horticultural purposes. Examples of fencing materials include privacy fences, ski/snow fences and garden fences. Whether custom designed, colored and manufactured or one of our many “always in-stock solutions,” Volm has the ability to deliver whatever you need, wherever you need it. Fast and reasonable delivery is available on many many of our products. Call us today at 1-800-253-4737.
