Heavy rain, wind and normal water run-off can cause erosion on your property. Not only can losing topsoil impact your plants, lawn and landscaping, but it can also cause mudslides and impact the environment. If you have areas on your property that are susceptible to erosion, there are solutions. Woodburn Landscapes offers erosion control services to protect your property in the greater Atlanta and Sandy Springs area.
Erosion is a natural occurrence when water washes away the top layer of soil. Unfortunately, this can severely damage your property, especially your landscaping. Slopes and hills are the most susceptible to erosion due to the incline, but any area can sustain topsoil loss. You may notice puddles forming in areas, small mudslides on slopes or exposed roots on trees or shrubs. At Woodburn Landscapes, we can offer solutions for erosion control to protect your yard and outdoor spaces.
Solutions to Stop Erosion
There are many different options for controlling erosion. Our experienced landscape experts can evaluate your property and determine what is causing erosion and the best options to stop soil loss. Proper drainage is important – if too much water is accumulating on your property, it can cause erosion. We can install drainage solutions, like French drains, to direct water runoff away from landscaped areas. Other possible erosion control services include:
- Planting ground cover
- Adding plants, shrubs and trees to build a root system
- Retaining walls for slopes or hills
- Swales, culverts and water collection devices
