EROSION & SEDIMENT CONTROL FOR DEVELOPERS
Having worked on thousands of commercial construction projects with General Contractors and Engineers since 2002, Construction EcoServices is keenly aware of the importance regarding erosion control, turf establishment and slope stabilization. Often, there is a lack of communication between the Developer/Owner and General Contractor regarding what the project requires in order to satisfy somewhat different objectives.
Your Contractor’s objective may be to achieve an initial stand of grass and move on to the next project. This approach typically employs the least expensive methods to complete a regulatory requirement for final stabilization. Many commercially available mulch products, combined with seed, fertilizer and some good luck with “Mother Nature” can get there, and the contractor meets his goal… but will it last?
You, on the other hand, who will live with the result indefinitely, may have a significantly different objective. Instead of simply initial vegetation, the developer/owner is more likely to be interested in slope stabilization and turf establishment that is sustainable…
Utilizing the latest technologies available in Hydraulically Applied Erosion Control Blankets, permanent Turf Reinforcement Mats and advanced mulch products, Construction EcoServices can guarantee results that resist erosion and enhance property value.
Let us assist you in achieving your objectives…
- Flexterra – High Performance-Flexible Growth Medium
- ProGanics – Biotic Soil Media (BSM)
- ProMatrix – Engineered Fiber Matrix™
- Green Armor – For high-discharge waterways and steep slopes
Our approach is to think beyond an initial stand of grass, as we feel it is the best interest to the property owner that a proper solution should be slope stabilization and turf establishment that is sustainable. This can certainly be achieved, but requires some investigation and planning. And while somewhat more costly, a more holistic approach to stabilization challenges can consistently yield an outcome that enhances property value and is more environmentally responsible.

Stormwater: Why Care?
Stormwater management may seem like a relatively new industry, but it has actually been around since the Roman times. They knew, even back then, that managing stormwater runoff was a key issue to urban living. With poor stormwater management, both flooding and disease constantly wreaked havoc in ancient cities.
Not much has changed since then, except now, with more and more of the earth being covered over with cement and other impervious surfaces, the negative effects of poor stormwater management have increased exponentially. Our natural water supplies are at risk due to pollution and their lack of ability to recharge. The flowing of our waterways are at risk from erosion, sediment build up, and trash. And, our marine life is at risk, from all the chemicals finding their way into bodies of water.
Some may see stormwater management as just another unnecessary and unwanted cost to construction projects or property ownership and management. But, understanding the negative effects that poor or no stormwater management is causing should be a concern to us all. It affects where we live and play. It affects our marine-based food supply. It affects our dwindling water supply.
We care. It is why we do what we do.
While the rest of the country focused on treating one inch of rainfall, we were pushing the limits and learning how to manage the largest storms by using Low Impact Development (LID) / Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) solutions. We believed that if we could develop LID / GSI solutions in a place like Houston Texas, we could make them work anywhere.
Not only have we succeeded, but we have the the data, the case studies, and the experiences to prove it.
Since 2005, the team at Construction EcoServices and it’s partners around the country have dedicated their work to both the big discoveries and the small, that have drastically improved the performance and reliability of Low Impact Development. Collectively, they have been compiled here on this site, so that you may take advantage of the knowledge that has come from our success and failures.
