Filtrexx™ LockDown™ Netting: Shear strength for severe slopes

Filtrexx™ LockDown™ Netting allows you to make your own reinforced erosion blankets on site. The netting keeps compost in place on slippery slopes during heavy rain events.

Our Cotton LockDown™ Netting is 100% naturally biodegradable.

Prior to installing the GrowthMedia Erosion Control Blanket, place the Filtrexx™ LockDown™ Netting on the slope to ensure stability and adding shear strength. GECB is then applied over top of the Filtrexx™ LockDown™ Netting. The netting helps to hold the GrowthMedia in place only until germination takes over.....then seeds and roots do the rest.


  • Enhances shear strength on steep rocky, sandy or clay slopes.
  • Cotton version is natural and 100% biodegradable.
  • Plastic version has 30 foot stretch width for ease of application and more permanent shear strength improvement.
  • Roots grow through netting into slopes.
  • Effective, inexpensive protection.

  • Available in a variety of roll sizes: 22” / 40” / 96” Cotton

Filtrexx™ Prescription GrowthMedia and FilterMedia™

Industrial sites offer many challenges in the urban setting. Most of the time, these ‘soils’ have little or no organic matter, extremely high or low PH, and generally are hard and compacted. They can also be plagued with heavy metals, pesticides, or other chemical constituents that keep vegetation from becoming established.

Vegetation establishment and maintenance on these soils is extremely difficult. Using special blends of ingredients, Filtrexx™ can customize a ‘Prescription’ GrowthMedia Blend that will best suit the contamination on each site.

This process saves time and money while increasing safety of the site for future uses.

This is a “prescription approach” using custom designed product on a site-by-site basis and includes consultation with agronomists and horticulturists.


  • Site specific custom blends based on various levels of contamination.
