Filtrexx™ Channel Soxx™ Rip rap replacement

Filtrexx™ Channel Soxx™Create a Vegetated Waterway. Use Filtrexx™ Channel Soxx™ to replace long runs of rip rap channels used to direct and slow water off steep slopes and outfall areas.

Seed Filtrexx™ Channel Soxx™ to create long lasting vegetation within the channels that further protects against erosion. Adding vegetation also increases aesthetic appeal and helps to anchor the Soxx™ to the channels because the roots grow through the Channel Soxx™ and attach themselves to the slopes. When seeded , Channel Soxx™ can be left in place to become part of the living landscape. Growth media used in the Channel Soxx™ also has the ability to bind various contaminants contained in runoff.
