Properly managing erosion is one of your most important jobs as a property owner in Idaho. If you are lucky enough to own a piece of this beautiful state, the last thing you want is for some of that land to erode away due to weather conditions or other factors. Fortunately, by working with North Idaho Pavers, you can put erosion control measures in place to stop or at least dramatically slow down this process. Get in touch with our team today to learn more!
Erosion control may be needed on your property because of the tremendous power that water possesses. Sure, it can look calm and peaceful like it does in a pond on a quiet day, but moving water can alter the earth dramatically – and is doing so constantly.
This is obviously the case if you have a creek or river on your property, as that constant flow of water is carving its way through the land and carrying bits of dirt and debris along with it. But you don’t need to have a moving body of water to require erosion control. Something as simple as a heavy rain can move dirt down a slope, and over time, the changes can be quite dramatic. Effective erosion control techniques will limit that movement and allow you to enjoy your land just as it is for years to come.
There are plenty of different ways to control erosion on a property, some more noticeable than others. As a starting point, you might do little more than cover your garden beds with a thick layer of mulch. In addition to the many other benefits it can provide, mulch will limit how much soil is moved around by the water that falls from the sky. By the same token, healthy plants that are rooted firmly in the soil can help to mitigate erosion effects, as well.
Those subtle options aren’t always going to be enough to do the job, however. In other cases, you’ll want to work with a team like North Idaho Pavers to add some form of structure that has been designed intentionally to keep the earth from moving around. This could be a concrete block retaining wall, a boulder wall, or some similar structure. When placed in the right spot – often in the middle of a slope – your new structure will cut down on the threat of erosion and it may also make the property more useful by leveling out some of its sections.
Once you have decided that some erosion control work is necessary on your property, the next step will be to decide which contractor to trust with the job. For that, North Idaho Pavers is the easy pick. Some of our many qualifications include the following –
