What is Erosion Control?
Superior’s erosion control services aim to fight against wind and water erosion on slopes, waterways, and construction sites by integrating innovative products and establishing quality vegetation for long term performance.
Who Needs Erosion Control?
Anyone who has land that is at risk of erosion can benefit from erosion control solutions. Areas of land that don’t have any ground covering, such as beaches, areas with loose soil, bare slopes, streambanks, and construction sites, are susceptible to the effects of erosion.

Planting sand dune grass is an effective and natural method of preventing sand erosion. The friction of vegetation stops blowing sediment in its tracks. Learn why our dune grass planting services at Superior Groundcover are some of the best in Michigan.
Benefits of Erosion Control
Maintaining land leads to a higher property value. Without proper erosion control, the safety of your backyard, fencing, garden, and even the foundation of your home could be compromised. Proper land management requires some form of erosion control.
Erosion barriers consist of structures like seawalls that serve as above-ground blockades for sediment and water that erode the landscape. They need periodic replacement and reinforcement, and they focus on managing damage rather than working with the land to prevent it.
Our grass cover erosion control solutions transform the landscape with vegetation. Vegetation has roots that soak up water and prevent flooding-based erosion. The hydroseed grass acts as a stabilizer for the ground, preventing migration of sediment and maintaining the levels of your property.
SOX erosion control products are embedded in the bank of a body of water and work with the land to eliminate the effects of erosion. This is a long-term solution that doesn’t need maintenance and will last decades.
Cost of Erosion Control
The cost of erosion control depends on the method, and those categories contain variations in price. DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX are available at different pricepoints, and the cost of erosion control grass seed services varies based on seed mixture. The standard cost in Michigan per acre ranges from $3000–$5000. Of course, other factors influence the price, such as inspection costs, preparation time, and other obstacles workers may come across.
DIY vs. Professional Erosion Control
Our trained professionals have years of experience and have fine-tuned the craft of erosion prevention. We can easily determine barriers to achieving your desired result and rework the land to achieve the ideal landscape. Attempting to do your own erosion control can be messy and expensive, especially if you’re inexperienced, and systems like SOX are best installed by professionals. Superior Groundcover works quickly and takes the hassle out of your hands.

Backfill for Seawall Installation & Repair Seawalls are not permanent solutions. Over time, they actually make erosion worse due to wave flanking and scouring. In fact, the Michigan Shoreline Partnership, states that the “two most destructive actions” that cause shoreline erosion are removing natural vegetation and building seawalls or “hardening of the shoreline” in any […]
Shoreline erosion affects both the Great Lakes and inland lakes in Michigan. When shoreline erosion happens, major problems arise for property owners as well as the lake environment. Sedimentation alters the ecosystem in lakes in ways like: removing or damaging plants that the fish need for food and spawning; bringing pollutants from the shore/soil into […]
