"Straw wattles" are another method of an erosion control
barrier. They are basically a “tube” filled with straw.
The “tube” is made of a plastic netting material that is
filled with a weed free mixture of straw.
Wattles are available in different sizes with the most
common being 9”x25’ and 12”x20”. Wattles are generally
installed on existing grade and staked with 1”x1”
hardwood stakes at 4’ on center and at the beginning and
end of each wattle. Wattles are more often than not,
installed in conjunction with out silt fence systems.
The silt fence is generally installed first and then the
wattles are placed along the “upland” side of the silt
fence and securely staked down.
