Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes is a blend of 34 native wildflowers and grasses that enjoy a low-maintenance care regime. Strongly rooted grasses aid soil stabilisation whilst flowering plants bring an extra layer of attractiveness.

Ideal for slopes, banks, damp soils and the margins of ponds, streams or Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS), Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes offers a real boost to biodiversity. Insects, amphibians, small mammals and birds truly appreciate this wonderful source of food and shelter.

Key points

  • Perennial plants: no need to overseed, repopulate or replant (unless you want to).
  • Very easy to install: the ground-stabilising blanket is pre-populated with living plants. Simply unroll, peg down, water and walk away. Keep irrigated until plants are well established.
  • Quick to establish: the combination of the matting system and choice of vigorous rooting plants will immediately start to stabilise soil on banks and slopes.
  • High proportion of flowering plants compared with rush- or sedge-based stabilisation solutions.
  • Flowering time: May–July (depending on local weather conditions).
  • Meadowmat is mown before despatch to minimise damage to plants. It will not be in flower when it is delivered.
  • A standard roll covers 1 square metre of prepared soil and weighs up to 25kg. The company recommends having two people to install it. Larger rolls may be provided by special request. 

Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes will change appearance from year to year. The species mix is influenced by microclimate, weather conditions and the creatures that visit regularly. It’s a truly biodiverse and adaptable product.

A layer of biodegradeable geotextile (coir-based) allows fast “planting” and establishment of a diverse mix of plant species. Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes starts working from the moment it is unrolled and its effects continue to improve. The planted layer immediately reduces any erosion from rainfall and as roots establish and develop the soil is further stabilised. At the same time, the vegetation attracts and supports a wide range of fauna.

The maintenance regime for Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes is uncomplicated and fits easily with health and safety practices. Simply mow once a year and remove all of the clippings. All species in Meadowmat for SuDS and Slopes are non-toxic. This product lends itself to grazing by sheep, goats, geese or other animals.
