Sediment & Erosion Control Products

The Best Erosion Control Products Stabilize Slopes and Help Prevent Sedimentation Issues

Effective soil erosion control products and slope stabilization materials are essential for the proper management and control of construction sites. Hardscaping, civil projects, tillage areas and a variety of geoengineered environments also often need good soil and sediment stabilization work. Sediment control products reduce soil loss and damaging sedimentation of rivers and streams. Working on steep slopes, hillsides, channels and complex drainage systems often require careful soil reinforcement or restoration. A full suite of erosion control products offers flexible and versatile solutions — your best defense against erosion and sedimentation processes.

Here we highlight a few of the best geosynthetic materials and products designed to help resolve a wide range of slope, sediment and soil erosion conditions. We emphasize the diversity and effectiveness of our sediment and erosion control solutions applied to construction sites, waterways, landscaping and many other geoengineering environments.

What Are Erosion Control Products?

Different erosion control products handle soil loss, water runoff, slope stabilization, bank reinforcement and a whole host of other erosion control and drainage applications. At Bluestone Supply we carry a full range of geosynthetic materials, such as uniaxial and biaxial geogrids, geotextiles and erosion control blankets. We also stock wire forms and architectural gabion baskets, which when filled with rocks or recycled glass products, are strategically placed for structural reinforcement and erosion control on slopes. Erosion control geotextiles include woven and non-woven polyester or polypropylene fabrics. Gravel-Lok is an effective aggregate bond for stones and rocks and a solid defense against erosion on driveways, patios, drains, walkways and other applications.

What Is the Best Material to Stop Erosion?

The best materials to stop erosion vary depending on the type of erosion process, and the specific slopes and soil conditions. Erosion is a natural or man-made process caused by wind, water or ice acting under the influence of gravity. Many types of human activity, including construction projects and landscaping, can exacerbate soil and water erosion and create the need for erosion control products and designs. For example, specially designed geogrid textiles give outstanding tensile strength for permanent slope reinforcement. Geogrids with different gaps filled with compacted and interlocking soil aggregate are particularly effective. In vertical applications, geocells and gabions deliver effective soil erosion control and stabilization for walls and steep slopes. Base reinforcement with biaxial geogrids is effective in preventing softer soil erosion and sediment loss on gentle slopes. Erosion control bags are another type of product that can help with shoreline stabilization to prevent heavy flooding.

What Are Sediment Control Products?

Sediment control is critical to manage sediment yield and runoff. Barriers, such as fibrous log products, silt fences and erosion blankets, are some common solutions to prevent waterways becoming filled with sediment and loose soil washed off slopes. The amount and type of vegetation remaining on a slope is also an important factor in choosing a sediment control product solution. Depending on the square footage of your application and the slopes involved on the site, we often find a combination of several sediment control products to be ideal.

What Is the Best Way to Stop Erosion in Soils?

The best erosion control is to minimize disturbance of the slope as much as possible — obviously, this is not always feasible, or even desirable. Once a surface has been affected, stabilization and erosion protection are the best options. Loose soils don't have effective adherent properties and are more easily dislodged and moved by wind and water. Compacted soils absorb less water and cause faster and more damaging runoff water movement on slopes. Sediment and erosion control products restore the ability of slopes and soils to resist movement induced by wind, ice and water. The most effective erosion control applications resolve sediment and soil issues with reference to the degree of slope, the type of soil and drainage, and the actual erosion process and sediment movement.

Bluestone Supply is your go-to civil supply resource when you need to implement any type of soil erosion and sediment control solution. We offer a complete erosion control family of products with our one-stop shop and innovative marketplace portal. We ship nationwide, and we'll partner with you to deliver the best value package to meet all your drainage, sediment and erosion control product needs.
