For Superior Turf Establishment, Low Cost Erosion Control, Environmental Compliance, Homeowners Can Use Futerra® F4 Netless(TM) Erosion Control Blanket

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Feb. 15 -- Homeowners wanting to establish grass quickly and inexpensively can turn to new Futerra® F4 Netless(TM) Erosion Control and Revegetation Blanket from Profile Products LLC. This revolutionary product is environmentally friendly, provides superior erosion control and seed germination, and helps establish grass for a fraction of the cost of sod. One truckload of Futerra F4 Netless covers five acres compared to a truckload of sod that covers less than 1/4 acre. Two people can lay 6,000 square feet of Futerra F4 Netless in one hour versus laying the same amount of sod in six hours.

Testing also proves that Futerra F4 Netless produces nearly 85 percent seed germination and over 98 percent effective erosion control, values that far exceed any alternative erosion control blankets, to assist in quick turf establishment around homes. Futerra F4 Netless bonds immediately to the soil to keep it and grass seed securely in place, which is critical on slopes and landscaped areas.

Futerra F4 Netless is unlike traditional blankets that use netting to provide for installation strength. Instead, Futerra F4 Netless utilizes the latest in scientific technology that eliminates the need for netting and the messy threads that endanger wildlife and entangle mowers. While providing superior erosion control, Futerra F4 Netless also offers greater dimensional stability, weighs less and is easier to install than netted alternatives. Futerra F4 Netless is available for purchase through home improvement stores, Lowe's and Home Depot.

"Profile Products continues to be responsive to the cost and environmental concerns of homeowners through the quality of our products," said John Schoch, president of Profile Products. "With Futerra F4 Netless, homeowners have superior erosion control without the expense of costly sod or entangling the lawn with nets."
