The timely and professional completion of your construction project depends on proper erosion control. Learn how this trusted and convenient solution safeguards your site while nourishing the surface.
Erosion Control Matting
From filter socks to hydroseeding, there are multiple methods of erosion control on commercial land. But an erosion control mat is often the unsung hero of many construction sites. This is a protective mulch blanket or a soil stabilization mat made of rolled erosion control product, or RECP. This product is a rigid, coarse material, structurally or chemically woven together, creating the erosion control mat that facilitates vegetation establishment. The unique weaving protects your site’s surface from rain impact and runoff water—it reduces the speed at which water moves across the surface.
How Do Erosion Control Mats Work?
Erosion control mats are made with biodegradable products that promote seed germination. The mat is applied to the soil to limit erosion from rainfall and enhance vegetation, allowing deep-rooted planting like trees and bushes to rejuvenate the soil.
Sloping properties and low areas are subject to floods because water tends to pool more quickly in this environment. Erosion control mats on slopes prevent hillside erosion while also minimizing and controlling runoff water.
Protect the Environment and Your Company’s Reputation
While erosion control mats keep harmful herbivores away, they’re still safe for wildlife. And since they also minimize runoff water from your construction site, you protect the area’s natural habitats and waterways from contamination. Your efforts to minimize drainage also prevent EPA fines. Lastly, proper landscaping and erosion control contribute to cleaner air, which is especially important in a construction zone with lots of truck traffic releasing emissions into the atmosphere.
How To Get The Best Results From ECMs
For your erosion control mats to work correctly, install them after soil preparation such as fertilizing and seeding is complete. All rocks and soil clods must also be removed from the area before installation. After the area is clear, erosion control mats are installed with metal wire staples through the blanket. It’s also important that the mats remain flush with the soil and staples must be installed on every seam for safety.
Hiring a professional landscaping company to complete the job will make sure that the mats are installed for optimum functionality. Knowledgeable and experienced professionals ensure your industrial or manufacturing warehouse property looks presentable.
