Erosion control is preventing the washing away of soil particles by the action of wind or rain, while sediment control relates to controlling or containing the sediment laden water once erosion has taken place.
Erosion and sediment controls have different roles. Use the best tools for the site that reflect correct management of the risks for the site and activity. An Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP) is the best way to prioritise erosion and sediment control measures.
This could be captured in many ways, see below some techniques that Evergreen Landcare can help you with on your project.
Siltstop® Sock Slope Protection
Traditionally filled with wood chip and soil confined in a UV protected sock. Siltstop® socks are hardy, permeable socks used to divert or filter runoff on surfaces.
Evergreen Landcare can supply and install to any scale for your project. Siltstop® socks can be premade to order or made on-site at custom lengths to suit the needs of the application.
Geo Web Stabilisation
Geo Web works through an interconnected honeycomb-like network where 3D cells confine and stabilise soils that would otherwise be unstable under loading. Installing geo web is an efficient and economical way to control soil.
Geo Webb stabilisation is typically used on swales, storm water diversion, spill ways, outfalls, and water flow channels. Evergreen Landcare have been installing geo web devises since their inception and can provide you with competitive rates to deliver your project requirements.
Biodegradable Soil Saver Matting
Soil saver is an ideal surface protection tool whilst vegetation is establishing, soil saver allows the establishing grass to breathe. It forms and inexpensive, 100% biodegradable erosion blanket that provides and ideal environment for vegetation growth.
Soil Saver coconut mesh placed and pinned on this shady raw pumice batter and applied Hydrosoil®. The Hydrosoil® will provide a good growing median, with appropriate fertiliser, special batter seed blend, along with more organic matter in was is a difficult low fertility site. The Soil Saver assisting in stabilising the bank till vegetation establishes.
