Construction, land development, and agriculture sometimes result in soil erosion. Reed Hydromulching, Inc. has experience in providing erosion control for a variety of landscapes. Erosion control may feature no till seeding, hydromulching, application of a bonded fiber matrix, or silt fencing.
Read on to learn more about available erosion control methods for your Texas commercial, agricultural, or construction project.
Protecting the Land with Erosion Control
Erosion control is the practice of preventing or controlling wind or water erosion in agriculture, land development and construction. The best way to approach soil erosion control is by developing a plan before construction begins. You may need to schedule site work around the planting of erosion control plants or other barriers designed to prevent erosion on your land. Also, the vegetation or erosion control blanket requires maintenance after installation to ensure continued benefit.
If you’re dealing with soil erosion that’s already underway, there are ways to rebuild certain areas or install an erosion control fabric for the physical barrier required to prevent additional erosion. Wind and water cause erosion, and these measures help prevent erosion from occurring or getting worse.
Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydro-mulching, hydraseeding) is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed and mulch.
What’s in the hydromulch slurry?
- 100% Wood Fiber Matrix
- Fertilizer component tailored to site conditions
- Hydromulch fiber to aid in uniform seed disbursement & moisture retention
- Tackifier to bind the slurry for uniform seed to soil contact during establishment
Our experience allows us to customize the slurry to tailor the project to your specific erosion control needs.
Erosion Control Fiber Matrixes
Reed Hydromulching, Inc. uses a 1-step application process to apply a Bonded Fiber Matrix or Stabilized Fiber Matrix to the land. These products are enhanced by a specially engineered fiber product that boasts mechanical or hydraulic bonding agents.
We can apply a bonded fiber matrix or stabilized fiber matrix without our seed or fertilizer components so that you can prevent erosion in areas where you don’t want vegetation. We’ll discuss your options for soil erosion control fiber matrixes when we visit your property to create your custom erosion prevention plan.
Planting Grass or Vegetation for Erosion Control
You may choose to use a Silt Fence option to prevent erosion on your property, or you may decide that hydromulching (or hydroseeding) might offer better protection from erosion. A field that doesn’t have any vegetation is vulnerable to erosion, but vegetation can eliminate or greatly reduce that problem.
In addition to erosion control grass, our hydroseeding can also provide a variety of plant life including wildflowers and native grasses. If you’re sure you don’t want vegetation in the area, we also have erosion control mixes without seeds.
Silt Fencing with Soil Erosion Blankets
One of the most commonly used methods for soil erosion control in commercial and residential construction is Silt Fence. Made of woven polypropylene yarn, Silt Fence allows water to pass through the fabric but restricts the movement of sediment.
