Use Mulch To Prevent Slope Erosion

Placing mulch on a slope is an economical and preventative erosion control. Placing mulch involves spreading a blanket of organic material on fill slopes, cut slopes, and other disturbed roadside areas to reduce erosion and cut-down on weed growth.

Main Street Materials provides the highest quality Stonewood® mulch, which we can place onto roadside slopes for our customers.

 

When To Use This Treatment

  • Typically applied on slopes 2:1 (H:V) and flatter

The Benefits of Mulch include:

  • Transforming and beautifying the on-ramps and gateways to your city
  • Weed abatement, improved potential for vigorous long term vegetation coverage
