What is Erosion Control?

Erosion is when soil and rock are moved from one location to another due to the forces of water and wind. Erosion can be a very damaging and expensive problem if it not dealt with in a timely manner. Homeowners that live in the hills or on a slope are the most prone to erosion damage on their property.

Shoreline Protection

There are many extraordinary benefits of living on beachfront property. Unfortunately, this luxury comes along with erosion created by the water from the ocean.

When beachfront properties are threatened, the the construction of a Seawall provides significant protection. Seawalls are man made structures that are built parallel to the water to protect from the water and sand. They are commonly referred to as bulkheads and revetments.

Groins are another method of providing beachfront property protection from buildup of sand causing erosion to develop rather quickly.

Drainage Control

Erosion Control When you live on a hillside, you need to have erosion control.
Gravity forces water to constantly move downward. When your home is located on a slope, the water needs somewhere to go and without the proper protection, erosion will start to occur sooner than you think.

Not only is it important to control where and how the water is drained, but it is also very important to control the speed of the drainage as well.

The construction of swales/grading creates the perfect drainage solution for your hillside home against erosion. This process uses the natural flow of gravity to reshape and resurface your lawn or landscape.

Storm drains can be added to control the speed run-off down the slope of your property. Rock basket retaining walls, or gabions provide a beautiful aesthetic value as well.

We have a complete section dedicated to Drainage Control.
