EROSION & SEDIMENT CONTROL FOR LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS
As a Landscape Architect, you are in the unique position to specify what products and techniques are employed to achieve stabilization using vegetation for erosion control. Knowing the latest technologies available for your specifications is central to making the right recommendation to your client. Since 2002, Construction EcoServices has been committed to the study of innovation in this scope of work, and we’ve developed lasting relationships within the industry.
Most construction documents use a standard county or city specification regarding seed, mulch and fertilizer. These may be generally useful, but not consider the latest in turf establishment technology; especially regarding stabilization of pond slopes, channels and berms. Newer methods can replace time consuming and less effective solutions. For example, hydraulically applied erosion control blankets can be quickly installed and result in a more environmentally friendly solution.
Construction EcoServices has software tools to assist you in developing green specifications for projects that present specific challenges, such as, slope and drainage channels, remote sites and topsoil alternatives.
Contact Construction EcoServices with your project requirements. We have results to share…
- 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.
