Boerne Stage Rd. San Antonio, TX
Temporary vegetation was required on a project perimeter to provide silt and erosion protection for a pad site in San Antonio, TX. What makes great base material makes less than ideal growing medium though, and there was less than one percent organic matter – far less than was needed to sustain successful plant growth.
Waste Management Landfill Austin, TX
A previous vegetation attempt in 2017 rested in only sunflowers... a weed not in the seed mix used on the site. Significant rilling and erosion on the site due to a lack of desirable vegetation occurred. Additionally, successful vegetation at sufficient density was required to ensure liner protection.
Dissette Street Widening and Reconstruction
The Dissette Street Widening Project had several unique features, chief among them was the requirement for a green wall system due to the projects close proximity to an environmentally sensitive wetland. Maccaferri’s Green Terramesh was chosen for the structural component and combined with Verdyol’s Biotic Earth to promote sustainable, lush vegetation. Biotic Earth was applied to the filled gabon wall at a rate of 3,500lbs/ac and topped with a fiber reinforced matrix (FRM) for further erosion control.
Baffin Windfarm Kenedy Co. TX
Previous attempts at erosion control and vegetation establishment had failed on tower footings at the Baffin Windfarm south of the city of Sarita in Kenedy County Texas. Hot, dry conditions, low soil fertility, and
additional issue of the wind farm being an active cattle ranch combined to make clear why previous attempts at revegetation had been unsuccessful. Due to entanglement risk, the property owner also dictated no erosion control blankets with netting could be used – all erosion control must be hydraulically applied. A special blend of of seed was required due to grazing activity.
