Erosion is the geological process in which soil is worn away and moved by natural forces such as wind and water and is one of the most significant environmental disasters to impact the state of Georgia.
Heavy Equip LLC deals with Soil Erosion which impacts both commercial and personal properties of every size.
the 4 Types of erosion we deal with
• Splash Erosion - Created
from the impact of a falling
raindrop dislodging and
splashing soil particles away
• Sheet Erosion - When
runoff moves soil loosened
by splash erosion, allowing
water to pool
• Rill Erosion - Channels
created by unaddressed
runoff that develops into
minor streams (ie. rills)
• Gully Erosion - If left
unaddressed, soil between
small rills will wash away
and become one large gully
From vehicular damage caused by washed out driveways to damage to your home's foundation, unaddressed erosion can lead to severe property damage.
Why is erosion control important for your home or business?
Erosion Control can help stabilize the ground and give a strong buffer towards the elements. Soil erosion can create significant damage to foundations of both residential and commercial buildings and if left unaddressed can undermine structural integrity.
Heavy Equip LLC uses Natural Ground Coverings like Sand and Rock Aggregates that help slow water down so that it can absorb into the ground properly and adequately without causing damage. This prevents concentrated drainage issues and gives a pleasing aesthetic with a natural hardscaped solution.
