Commercial Erosion Control Planning & Installation

Union Hydroseed offers comprehensive erosion control planning and installation services in California, Nevada, and Arizona.

Erosion control planning and installation refers to the systematic process of developing and implementing strategies to prevent or minimize soil erosion in various landscapes, such as construction sites,  fire burn sites, agricultural fields, or natural areas. Erosion control measures are essential for preserving soil integrity, preventing sediment runoff, and maintaining environmental sustainability.

The planning phase involves a thorough assessment of the site’s characteristics, including topography, soil composition, drainage patterns, and potential erosion risks. This assessment helps identify vulnerable areas and determine the appropriate techniques to be employed.

Erosion Control Planning & Installation

During the installation phase, erosion control measures outlined in the planning stage are implemented. This typically involves mobilizing equipment, installing physical barriers, establishing vegetation, and ensuring proper maintenance and monitoring.

Regular inspection and maintenance of measures are critical to their long-term effectiveness.

This includes inspecting and repairing structures, monitoring vegetative cover, removing sediment buildup, and adapting measures to changing site conditions.

Erosion Control Applications

Some commonly employed erosion control techniques include: 

1. Mulching: Applying organic or synthetic mulch materials, such as straw, wood chips, or erosion control blankets, helps protect exposed soil from the impact of rainfall and wind, reducing erosion rates.

2. Terracing: Constructing terraces or contouring the land helps break up slopes into multiple smaller steps, reducing the speed and flow of water runoff and promoting soil retention.

3. Vegetation Establishment: Planting vegetation, such as grasses, shrubs, or trees, creates a protective cover that binds the soil, reduces surface runoff, and stabilizes slopes. Native species are often preferred for their adaptability to local conditions.

4. Retaining Walls: Building retaining walls or gabions along steep slopes or embankments provides physical support, preventing soil movement and erosion.

5. Sediment Basins and Sediment Control Devices: Constructing sediment basins or employing sediment control devices, such as sediment fences or sediment traps, helps capture and retain sediment-laden runoff, preventing it from entering water bodies.

6. Stormwater Management: Implementing effective stormwater management practices, such as the use of permeable pavement, rain gardens, or retention ponds, helps control runoff volume and velocity, reducing erosion potential.
