Erosion & Sediment Control
17 September 2018
Turfgrass is the ultimate natural erosion & sediment control measure for your project.
After a rain event or flood when silt fences, rock checks, coir logs etc. all need to be repaired or replaced, your turfed drains are not likely to need any attention, it will regrow through the silt using it as a new topsoil base, perfect for construction sites that only need the drains in place during construction.
Turf naturally filters & captures environmental pollutants from site run-off & prevents them from entering waterways such as hydrocarbons, disturbed soil, cement, chemicals, steel oxide etc, keeping the EPA & local council inspectors happy.
Laying turf around your site also has a natural temperature cooling effect, by absorbing the suns radiation instead of reflecting it like a bare dirt surface or concrete would, turfed areas are on average 10°C cooler, plus with the added benefit of converting CO² to Oxygen more efficiently than trees, your workers, clients, end-users & the planet will thank you for it.
