The BermBuilder / Replaces silt fencing / 100% ground contact

The Rexius EcoBerm® eliminates the need for plastic silt fencing. No matter what the terrain, the EcoBerm® can be installed with minimal effort as compared to silt fence or other methods requiring ditching and reinforcement. This tested and proven product* has revolutionized sediment control by providing an option that is not only earth friendly but proven highly effective.


• Over 99% Effective*
In a Certified Erosion Control testing facility, an EcoBerm® has shown to be over 99% effective in reducing soil loss. These test results show that EcoBerm® compares with the highest rated BMP's in the industry in similar conditions.

• Cost Competitive with Existing BMP's
EcoBerm® not only maintains a low cost for installation, but does not require removal or disposal and the expense associated with that extra process.

• Consistent Installation
The patent pending BermBuilder™ combined with a single step pneumatic application and Microblend® additive creates a dependable system that insures the berm is installed to meet specified dimensions, and installed correctly with 100% ground contact.

• Biofiltration Capabilities
An independent lab* has shown that the combination of Microblend® and the compost/mulch used to make EcoBerms greatly enhances the ability of the material to degrade hydrocarbons as water flows through its three dimensional matrix.

• 100% Organic, Recycled & Reusable
EcoBerm® uses no plastic materials in its construction. The fibrous matrix it forms with the help of the bonding capabilities of Microblend® give the necessary structure needed without non-biodegradable reinforcements. Made with recycled organics, the compost/mulch blend can be used as an earth friendly soil amendment at the completion of a project.

Other Advantages of EcoBerm®:

  • May be seeded if left as a permanent part of the surrounding landscape
  • Conforms to all-terrain conditions
  • No ditching, staking or reinforcement necessary
  • Low impact to surrounding area, physically, visually and environmentally

*EcoBerm®, the patent-pending BermBuilder™, and Microblend® were tested at San Diego State University's Soil Erosion Research Laboratory and shown to reduce soil loss by over 99% in tested conditions. An S.T.A. approved independent microbiology laboratory, BBC Laboratories of Tempe, AZ, tested and showed that Microblend® greatly increased the hydrocarbon degradation capabilities of the compost/mulch materials used in EcoBerm®. Test results are available upon request.
