Landscape Erosion Control Services in New Paltz, NY ... We Solve Erosion Problems and Prevent Them From Ocurring
Between the rain and the snow, erosion is just a part of the landscape here in the Hudson Valley. Unfortunately, it can pose issues for your landscape if left unattended.
Signs of Erosion in Your Landscape:
- Crumbling, collapsing or failing slopes and hillsides
- Dried up mud streams after rain events
- Bare areas where grass and other plants won’t grow
Sometimes, the simplest solution is to regrade the affected area. Erosion happens when water quickly and forcefully runs down loose soil. Smoothing a sharp incline or slope reduces the runoff speed and minimizes the erosion.
Installing anything with a root system on an eroded slope will help reinforce the soil and fight erosion. Standard turf grass can do wonders, since its thick, complex root system is usually strong enough to hold soil in places.
However, a more robust approach with shrubs and ornamentals may be needed in more severe cases. Luckily, erosion planting installations can be planned to match your taste and lifestyle.
Another solution is the installation of a surface drain (like a french drain). These drains, installed correctly, relocate runoff that causes erosion elsewhere. Strategically placed drains, swales, and other stormwater management systems can mitigate even severe erosion.
In severe cases, a retaining wall may need to be constructed. Reinforcing the slope with a retaining wall and gently grading the area around it helped this client in New Paltz solve the issue if a quickly degrading slope.
