Turf Reinforcement Mats

Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM's) provide long term support for vegetation subjected to highly erosive conditions.


    • Permanent stabilization of channels and shorelines
    • Stable matrix of polymer fibers control erosion
    • Locks the plant roots in place to prevent scour
    • Uses plants to absorb the energy of water flow
    • More attractive than hard surface erosion control


    • For permanent erosion control on slopes
    • Support vegetation and prevent scour in channels
    • Provide long term protection for slow growing vegetation
    • Prevent washout during high water or flood conditions

Product Description

Most Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM's) are synthetic fiber erosion control blankets that offer permanent support to vegetation. TRM's combine vegetative growth and synthetic materials to form a high strength mat that helps prevent soil erosion in drainage areas and steep slopes. Erosion control systems that incorporate TRM's allow supported vegetation to be utilized in situations where unsupported vegetation would be washed away. In highly erosive situations where hard armor solutions such as riprap or concrete are being considered, a soft armor solution involving TRM supported vegetation may be an alternative.  TRM's are stapled onto the ground over the area that has been seeded and fertilized. As the vegetation grows through the TRM, the TRM provides erosion protection, a microclimate for seed germination, and protection of the immature plants from mechanical damage.
