Topsoil erosion can be a source of frustration for many, from homeowners looking for a lush lawn to contractors overseeing a construction site. Not only can topsoil erosion be an eyesore, but it can also pose a serious risk to a home or construction project’s longevity, often allowing precious land to be washed away.

The Causes of Topsoil Erosion

Topsoil can be easily eroded by heavy rainfall that washes soil particles away from your yard or construction site. This type of erosion can be difficult to combat, as heavy rainfall can be both unpredictable and incredibly destructive. 

Other causes of topsoil erosion include exposure to oceans, streams, lakes, or rivers. Additionally, agricultural activities can be a serious contributor to topsoil erosion, as modern agricultural practices involve disturbing soil and leaving it barren during the winter months, with no crops to hold the soil down with their roots, ultimately leaving soil stripped and vulnerable to erosion.

Construction also commonly contributes to topsoil erosion. Construction projects involve moving soil from place to place, leaving the soil with no intact root systems to protect it from washing away the moment a heavy rain comes through. 

The Effects of Topsoil Erosion

From desertification, a phenomenon where previously habitable areas are turned into desert lands, to the clogging of important waterways, the effects of topsoil erosion are destructive and preventative. 

To protect our environment, both locally and globally, topsoil erosion must be taken care of. To learn more about what you can do to help prevent topsoil erosion, contact Burns Environmental.

How Hydroseeding Can Help

Hydroseeding creates a simple solution to topsoil erosion by efficiently planting grasses using a combination of chemicals and seeds known as a “slurry”. 

This slurry will quickly germinate and produce lush grasses whose root systems will help prevent topsoil erosion. As your new grasses grow larger, they will become stronger and better at resisting both the natural and manmade forces of erosion. 

No Time Like The Present

Many projects are time-sensitive and topsoil erosion problems need to be addressed quickly. Hydroseeding is not only effective but fast. The hydroseeding slurry allows seeds to germinate and begin to sprout in as little as one week. 

Protect Your Bottom Line

Hydroseeding is an extremely cost-effective choice when it comes to preventing topsoil erosion. It is also often cheaper than laying sod and can be more effective at preventing topsoil erosion than sod alone. Because is a much quicker process, hydroseeding drives down the cost of labor considerably.
