Terra Novo Announces Launch Of Earthguard® Edge


Terra Novo Announces Launch of EarthGuard Edge, Newest Addition to its Product Line Designed for Cost-Efficient Erosion Control

EarthGuard EDGE Offers Easy Application for Small and Remote Sites without the need to Hydromulch

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (April 10, 2013) – Terra Novo, a leading manufacturer of erosion and sediment control products in Bakersfield, California, is expanding its EarthGuard line to include EarthGuard® EDGE™, a pellet form of the popular product for erosion control. The new EDGE formula allows users to apply the product without water by hand, mechanically, or air-drop. It’s ideal for use in remote areas with limited water and for smaller jobs where hydromulching is cost-prohibitive.

Like the rest of the EarthGuard product line, EarthGuard EDGE is non-toxic, 100% biodegradable and meets NSF drinking-water standards. It is chemically engineered to absorb the impact of raindrops and provides immediate erosion control and soil stabilization until permanent vegetation is established or until construction has resumed. EarthGuard EDGE is effective for erosion control, slope stabilization, landscape design, reclamation, storm water runoff protection, fire/burn rehabilitation, land development and construction. “

EarthGuard products work on the soil directly, offering users much more for much less,” says Scott Harrison, President of Terra Novo. “Competitors’ products need to cover 100% of surface area in order to work. EarthGuard EDGE covers more area in a shorter window of time and spreads naturally to untreated areas, so you spend significantly less on both the product and the labor to apply it. Like other Terra Novo products, EDGE is a user-friendly product is designed with the installer in mind and is formulated to work to our customers’ highest standards while delivering enormous product and labor savings.”
