Pre-cultivated plant mats help with the quick greening of the bank edge. They serve as protection against erosion and help in the renaturation of water bodies.
Our reed mats are pre-planted coconut mats. This near-natural solution is also known as filter mats in near-natural hydraulic engineering.
The clear advantage of this solution for fast-growing bank reinforcement is that the plants are already firmly attached to the carrier material (coconut mat) when they are delivered to your lake. The inner fibers of the coconut mat serve as a carrier material and as a rooting substrate for the aquatic plants.
You can buy the filter mats from us with dimensions of 1m x 5m.
The premium bank protection for your water
The outer fabric edging allows robust handling at the installation site and quick and secure anchoring to the water.
The mats are planted in the nursery before delivery at the beginning of the growing season with plants from the riparian zone and reed zone.
With us, the plant mats have a growing season to grow and develop before we send them to you. Through the formation of runners and rhizomes, the plants gradually cover the entire surface of the coconut mat. In autumn a dense root felt has formed and the plant mats are ready for use on your body of water.
The plant mats are laid at the edge of the water on the prepared embankment and fastened with wooden wedges. We recommend using 3 - 4 ground anchors per m2, depending on the location. Before laying the water plant mats, the embankment must be cleared of large stones or roots so that there is ground contact for the planting of the mat. In order to improve the growth of the pre-cultivated plants on the bank zone, the mats should not be laid deeper than 20 cm below the mean water line and no higher than 40 cm above the mean water line.
Installation can take place throughout the year.
Note! But outside of periods of frost. If the water level fluctuates, planting is best done in autumn.

Reed mats are preferably used on bodies of water with fluctuating water levels or in areas where the rapid establishment of a flat and powerfully developed reed bed is necessary to secure the bank.
Reed mats are pre-planted and pre-cultivated filter mats. They are offered in the dimensions 0.75 m × 5.00 m and 1.00 m × 5.00 m. The outer fabric edging allows robust handling and solid anchoring at the place of use. The inner fiber is the rooting substrate for the plants.
Die Matten werden im Anzuchtbetrieb zu Beginn der Vegetationsperiode mit Pflanzen der Ufer- und Röhrichtzone (20 Stück / m2) bepflanzt. Danach haben sie eine Vegetationsperiode lang Zeit, zu wachsen und sich zu entwickeln. Durch die Ausläufer- oder Rhizombildung bedecken sie nach und nach die gesamte Fläche der Matte. Im Herbst hat sich dann ein dichter Wurzelfilz unter den Matten gebildet.
The choice of plant species is based on the natural bank zoning at the installation site. Reed mats are provided with different planting schemes. Their plantings are based on the location requirements z. B. for sunny or partially shaded areas, for flowing or standing water, long flooding times, the emphasis on attractively flowering species or the use of bite-resistant species.
