Erosion Control

close-up-on-slope-erosion-control-grids-on-steep-slopeIf you have a slope on your property that you would like to landscape, it will require careful consideration. That’s because slopes are prone to erosion and if the soil isn’t anchored with the right choice of plantings, materials, and hardscaping, you will lose precious soil every time it rains. This erosion can build up around your property and cause a safety hazard for your family and visitors. Dislodged soil can also clog municipal water drains, so erosion control is clearly an important consideration.

Every slope requires a unique solution

Erosion control can’t be solved with a one-size-fits-all approach. Every slope is different and the needs of your landscape will be unique, which means that you’ll require a solution that has been tailored for your specific concerns and considerations. At Nature’s Work, we have extensive experience providing landscape designs that integrate erosion control into the plans to ensure that your landscaping looks beautiful for years to come.

There are a number of different ways to keep erosion in check, including:

  • Plantings. Shrubs, flowers, and sod can help keep your soil in place thanks to their extensive root systems which act as an anchor for your soil. Leaves and foliage also prevent rain from reaching the soil, creating an additional level of protection.

  • Textiles. There are a number of different types of fabrics that are specifically designed to help with erosion, including burlap, jute, and coir. If it will take a while for your plantings to become established, these fabrics will prevent your soil from being washed away by heavy rains.

  • Retaining walls. By creating a physical barrier that your soil can’t cross and distributing the weight of the soil along the length of the wall, a retaining wall will help keep your soil in place. They also add a beautiful visual element to your landscape design.

The landscaping experts at Nature’s Work will work closely with you to find the right erosion control solution for your unique needs. Ready to learn more about our soil erosion services?
