Coir rolls are available unplanted or pre-established with mature native wetland plants. Standard plant mixes are available from stock all year round or specialist mixes can be contract grown to order. Coir rolls and pallets can be an excellent technique for establishing marginal vegetation around lake edges, streams and rivers banks. Coir rolls are cost-effective, organic revetments that can be suitable alternatives to hard revetments in many applications. Pre-established coir rolls are often used for mitigation purposes such as the rapid establishment of water vole habitat.
All coir rolls are manufactured in the UK from virgin mattress coir fibre imported from Sri Lanka in compacted bale form. This effectively reduces the carbon footprint of the coir products by 80% compared to imported pre-formed coir rolls. Manufacturing in the UK also allows better control of quality and availability of product sizes.

- Juncus effusus (Soft Rush)
