What Is Slope Erosion Control?

Slope erosion control is the act of stabilizing slopes with high-quality, durable materials that protect exposed property, preventing runoff, wind, and human presence from deteriorating land. 

Superior Groundcover offers various unique, living erosion control solutions tailored to your specific site circumstances. One of those solutions is SOX, a bioengineered erosion control system. Superior Groundcover, Inc. is a certified service provider for SOX Erosion Solutions. DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX begin to immediately protect sloped areas from erosion upon installation as a result of their durable double layer of knitted polyethylene containment mesh and dependable anchoring installation process.

How SOX Slope Erosion Control Works

There are 5 steps to our SOX slope erosion control process.

Slope Erosion Control

1. Inquire with Superior

Notice an area of your commercial or residential property facing deterioration? Send us a message today! We’d be happy to stop by for a site visit and offer a solution and budget for your specific project. We offer both DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX, which are ideal for use near water. Both are filled with a custom blend of growing media, including sand, topsoil, and organics and are vegetated with seed, plantings, or sod. While they do have different deployment methods, we are happy to help you determine which erosion control solution is right for your property.

2. Schedule Install Date

Once we’ve determined the amount of SOX material, components, and logistics necessary for your slope protection project, and you’ve accepted our formal proposal, we will contact you to set up an installation date.

3. Site Prep & SOX Installation

Superior Groundcover will prepare the work area ahead of time, including scheduling MISS DIG to flag underground utilities, identifying drainage outlet pipes, and removing any debris in the project area. On the installation day, our Superior team will arrive with your DredgeSOX or ShoreSOX and begin the install, properly deploying the SOX containment system and components, ensuring its longevity and durability for years to come.

4. Fill with Substrate & Vegetate

Once the Sox containment system is securely in place, our team will fill the DredgeSOX or ShoreSOX with our custom backfill material, contouring it to your existing slope. Finally, Superior Groundcover will vegetate the bioengineered erosion control system and surrounding area to blend in with the natural surroundings. Depending on your site, we may use native plantings, water plants, sod, or a hydroseeding process with custom seed mixes and specialized additives to establish a natural, long lasting erosion protection solution!

5. Immediately Enjoy Stabilized Slopes

DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX work to instantly provide protection upon installation, giving commercial and residential property owners more peace of mind that their property is protected from erosion.

Cost of Slope Erosion Control

Factors that impact the cost of Superior’s slope erosion control solutions include:

Size of the slope: The surface area of the slope will impact the prep time and amount of Sox material, fill material, and vegetation options necessary to protect it from erosion. Larger slopes will incur a higher cost.

Steepness of the slope: Steeper slopes can make installation more difficult, which can result in a higher cost. We are happy to provide you with a free estimate prior to beginning your installation.
