Preventing Soil Erosion

In most cases, soil erosion takes place during weather conditions ushered in by wind or water.

When the surrounding area is flat, bare, and dry, cultivated or dry land will cause erosion as the soil become loose or unstable. Wind is very strong and can easily lift soil particles into the air and drop sediments over several miles. One way to prevent soil erosion, you have to stabilize the soil and increase the moisture content. In turn, it will cause the soil to form chunks and slabs making the soil more difficult to move.

On the other hand, water can devastate land causing surface soil to wash away, and destroy vital nutrients while endangering seed and plant growth. Cultivated land is vulnerable to sheet erosion when the soil is overpowered by rushing water and cannot absorb or filter the water. To prevent water erosion, you need to shore up ditches and culverts while creating dams to send the water in a different direction or at least slow it down.

The Aftermath Of Soil Erosion

Rain and runoff add to soil erosion by carrying away soil and leaving sediment, pesticides, and fertilizers behind. Wind can pretty much do the same thing but dust clouds from suspension erosion will travel greater distances covering many areas and suffocate crops with sediment.

Because soil is vulnerable to erosion, it might offer some clues to prevent erosion or at least reduce the impact. The slope length, land topography, and elevation can add to soil erosion. Mudslides are common occurrences when erosion from water sends sheets of topsoil to slide over itself and then dislodge.

Accumulating elements like sand dunes are created from deposits left behind from wind erosion. It can be lifted and carried into the air many times during a wind event. Vegetation is critical for keeping soil stable and remaining in place. The roots from the vegetation will help to bind the soil together making it more difficult to move. Trees offer soil protection from wind because it's difficult for the wind to reach the soil.

Soil Erosion Effects

There are also economic impacts from soil erosion including loss of crops, loss of soil productivity, as well as repairs and restorations to areas affected by the erosion. Infrastructure can be weakened and roadways damaged by the accumulating sediment or runoff.

Other environmental impacts from erosion can be wind erosion stripping the land of its topsoil and damaging substructures or rooting plants. Water erosion can strain rivers and streams causing their protective banks to collapse under the pressure of the water's driving force.

When it comes to human health, wind erosion can lift particles into the air, then blow through windows increasing allergies and upper-respiratory conditions.

Water erosion can damage agriculture creating poor-quality produce. Both wind and water erosion will wash away fertilizers and pesticides and carry them over acres of land then deposit in rivers, streams, or through wind erosion harming the air and water resources.

Preventative Options

In this day and age, there are several options for controlling erosion There are products for road construction or to provide stabilization and filtration. These products are created to go beyond what is expected.

Woven Geotextile

Geotextiles are at the top of the list offering different sizes, shapes, or textures depending on what they are needed for. Geotextiles come in woven, non-woven, and coir. These products are good for preventative measures for strip farming and terracing.

Woven Geotextiles and fabrics are made from several different fibers. Their tight construction stabilizes soil and is very effective for controlling erosion. Woven geotextiles are used in road construction and shoreline erosion control. They are also used in areas suffering from heavy erosion, riprap, and on embankments and slopes to reduce runoff and prevent walls from collapsing.

Non-woven Geotextiles

Non-woven geotextiles are the chosen product due to their smooth, felt-like surface allowing water to flow through the fabric while filtering out particles. They are used in areas requiring subsurface filtration and stabilization while offering good drainage. Non-woven geotextiles are found in asphalt overlays and in the substructure of ponds.

Coir Related Products

Coir derived products are made from coconut tusks offering a natural answer for erosion control. Coir textiles provide deep rooting and nutrients. They offer good aeration and drainage to allow permanent vegetation to grow through. Coir textiles work to keep seeds and saplings in place and are safe for wildlife. These textiles do not need any chemical treatment.

Coir is also used to create check dams and small dams are constructed across swales and ditches to slow down the flow of water or alter its movement. It's also used to add to existing contours to build up the land or to fill rills or gullies. As Coir textile only lasts for 2 to 5 years, it's used for short-term, temporary, and semi-permanent situations. Coir comes in a variety of forms in order to be used to its full potential.

Coir wattles are created as natural barriers to filter water. Wattles are used for their strength and abilities for filtration. It's a perfect product for construction sites to reduce the level of impact. They are used in restoration projects to prevent future damage.

Unrolled Coir Blanket

Rolled out Coir Blanket

Coir erosion control blankets will increase soil stability and are effective in reducing the effects of erosion caused by wind and water. They are often used on slopes or other areas vulnerable to erosion. Coir erosion blankets are used in areas with a lot of shade and cold temperatures to improve germination time and to protect and nourish seeds.

Coir logs work the same way as wattles and blankets. Their shape is designed for areas with erosion and runoff found on hills, banks, and shorelines.

As time moves on, we are understanding how erosion impacts the environment, the economy, and our health. As far as we have come, more products on the market are designed to perform many functions to curb and offset wind and water erosion.
