Whether it’s a river, lake or stream, you likely have a body of water in your community that is important to you. When you or your community hires a contractor to install a retaining wall or put in a system that reduces bank erosion, it can be a bittersweet choice. On the one hand, you are glad to be doing something that will enhance the flow, safety and effectiveness of your river. But on the other hand, it is likely difficult to put something synthetic in such a beautiful, natural environment.
Fortunately, there is one solution to stabilizing and retaining your riverbank and controlling erosion that is both visually attractive and environmentally friendly. International Erosion Control Systems Inc is proud to manufacture and sell three different products that help with stabilization and erosion control without damaging your natural environment: our cable concrete mats, our Hydromulch, and our LG Retaining System. Read on to learn how these three products can help protect your river and still keep it beautiful and natural.
- Prevent erosion: Our Hudromulch, cable concrete mats and LG Retaining Systems are all very effective at preventing and containing erosion, especially along riverbanks. Hydromulch will bind quickly to the ground, giving your riverbank’s soil a natural layer of protection. The cable concrete mats, meanwhile, are extremely durable and weather resistant, so they can protect your riverbanks all year round. Finally, the LG Retaining Systems are solid, strong and easy to install. Whichever product you choose to use, your riverbank will not suffer from excessive erosion.
- Naturally decomposing: If you are looking for a very natural, environmentally friendly way to protect your riverbanks from erosion, then you can’t do any better than our naturally decomposing Hydromulch. This mulch is designed to decompose slowly over time, and is even packed with nutrients that will benefit your already existing soil. Our Hydromulch won’t only protect your environment—it will enhance it.
- Re-grow vegetation: If you opt to use either our Hydromulch or our cable concrete mat systems to prevent erosion and provide stability to your riverbank, then you won’t have to worry about driving away your naturally occurring vegetation. As mentioned above, Hydromulch will actually add nutrients to your soil, making it easier for vegetation to grow. And our cable concrete mats are designed to allow enough space for vegetation to grow in between them.
- Save money: Finally, no matter which erosion control and bank stability solution you choose to purchase from International Erosion Control Systems Inc, you’ll likely be saving money in the long run. Our cable concrete mats are among our most cost effective solutions, as they come to your site fully assembled, reducing the need for labor costs on your end. Plus, our Hydromulch serves as an erosion controller, while also doubling as a fertilizer. The money you save by taking advantage of these systems could then be used to promote more natural beauty on your property or in your community.
