These are some of the raw materials for gully-bandaging, staged near the gully and ready to go. Stone, and something called “coir” that is purportedly handmade from coconut husks in India and is brilliant for slowing storm water and settling out suspended silt. There is a beautiful demonstration of its use up at the new Skyline Checkdams (see posting for mid-December).
