A.G.A. Group Coir Pallets offer an excellent natural solution to establish marginal aquatic vegetation in lakes, ponds, rivers and stream banks. The success of the coir pallets lies in their diversity, they are so versatile and can be used to protect against erosion or provide habitat, such as on an Eco-Island. Where water bodies have been created by using artificial methods with synthetic membranes and liners, coir pallets can often be the only way to establish aquatic plants into the water body.
These coir pallets help to quickly establish aquatic plants in the area and increase the biodiversity of sites by providing habitat for a number of ecologically key species.Product Materials:
