Erosion Control Product for Gravel Driveway
Gravel Driveway Erosion Control
Question on erosion control product for gravel driveway: I have a gravel driveway on a lake lot and I am trying to keep the water from eroding and washing away the gravel. What do I use across a 10', 20', and 40' area for erosion control?
Answer: Hello there and Thank You for your inquiry! There are a couple of options we can go over for your erosion control application. You can use coir products along the edge to contain the area which will still allow the water to pass. Our coir wattle would be the most appropriate. Coir coconut wattles are perfect for effective sediment control during erosion control projects. The sediment will not leave a specified area if cars and trucks are moved. They are environmentally friendly, economical, extremely flexible, and easy to install. Furthermore, they give great performance and are reusable, natural, and 100% biodegradable!
Additional Driveway Erosion Control Options
You could also consider using a geotextile as a erosion control product for gravel driveway. Made from woven or nonwoven materials, this fabric is UV and Rot Resistant and ideal for stabilization. Woven geotexiltes primary functions include stabilization and separation. When placed between two mediums, it permanently prevents the mixing of those two materials. The soil quality is improved, which increases structural stability.
Placing down a geotextile in your location can help to filter water and prevent rocks or gravel from from moving. Nonwoven geotextiles are typically the material chosen for filtration due to their needle punched pore located throughout the fabric. This thin spacing helps to drain water while still keeping gravel in place.
