One thing is for sure: prepping for a job is just as important as the job itself. So many times we’re contacted by people who are suffering the after effects of incorrect erosion control — either on their own property or a neighboring property. And what comes trickling down (literally) can carry with it so much force that the face of surrounding landscapes truly do begin to shift. (Que ringing phone). It’s at this point that we are often called in to correct drainage issues left by previous contractors, and what is so frustrating for the customer is that many of these situations could be avoided if proper precautions were taken in the planning stages.
We were contacted recently by Lawn & Landscape magazine to discuss the importance of erosion control. Take a look at their article, “Plan Before You Attack,” written by Lindsey Getz.
It goes to show that it pays to think ahead.
