With new development and construction happening all around the Bay Area, it’s important to think about erosion control. At Watersavers, we are here to help.
Keeping soil on your job site is your main concern when implementing erosion control measures. A good first line of defense would be to purchase our biodegradable cocoa mats or jute netting. These products will help keep the soil stable.
All month long, you can purchase jute netting for an even lower price. While plants can help fight against soil erosion, it takes time for them to grow and take hold. With steep slopes up to 50 percent, jute netting is especially helpful. This biodegradable fiber is made from plants, so it retains moisture and fertilizes the surface soil. In addition, this soil stabilizing product encourages the growth of new vegetation. Each roll of jute netting is 4 feet wide and 225 feet long.
In addition, wattles and silt fences can help keep the soil on your site, especially when there are steeper slopes. Our straw wattles are also biodegradable and are a great short term protection (one to two years) against erosion. Wattles are especially good at reducing water flow down a slope.
Lastly, thinking about managing stormwater and runoff is important. Finding multiple locations for drainage will help limit soil erosion.
