Decorative stones and vegetation will be installed in the Slopetame2 areas.
Slopetame2 won out in a competitive contest among other products for the following reasons:
• Slopetame2′s fabric backing is injection molded to the grid, not glued on.
• Slopetame2 flexes in both directions – laterally and horizontally.
• Slopetame2 structure is low-profile leading to less stone fill.
• Slopetame2 has erosion control bars every third row between rings to help minimize stone movement.
