Superior installs the compost, and then spreads it across the ground with either seed mixed in (thin top-dress application) or incorporates seed into the existing soil to build up the organic content of the soil. The stronger the organic content of the soil, the more erosion can be prevented.
Benefits to Using Compost for Erosion Control
- Increasing water infiltration into the soil surface
- Reducing runoff
- Increasing plant growth & soil cover
- Increasing water holding capacity of the soil
- Buffering pH levels
- new vegetation can be established in the compost
