On eroded slopes and embankments plant containers are placed, where the seeds of plants with quick spreading roots such as bamboo, oak or paulownia are planted in. After a short time the roots take over the stabilization of soil and the planting container dissolve. The planting container itself are pressed from local waste materials such as straw, manure, hair and foliage with biological binders in molds and dried like bricks. The form allows for a slight slope and low erosion the formation of loose network structures and on steep climbs through the denser laying of positive and negative form a correspondingly greater networking.
