Erosion Control

How do you stop erosion?

Soil erosion occurs because of water run-off, tillage, agricultural practices,  construction and nature. The result of erosion is the removal of top soil and its vital nutrients. There are various solutions to soil erosion, which depend on the conditions under which erosion occurs.


Erosion control in urban areas often relates to rainwater run-off and  construction issues. Construction involves grading and clearing of land,  which moves top soil and increases the possibility of erosion in the  area. Erosion at construction sites contributes to drainage system clogs  due to the sediment that is washed off the site. Various erosion solutions are effective for construction and urban areas, including:

  • Vegetative ground cover
  • Mulch
  • Gravel access paths
  • Silt fencing

Retaining walls work best in combination with other control methods. The low wall keeps water inside garden beds so that soil has a chance to absorb it.
