Erosion & Drainage Control

Drainage & erosion control problems
Standing water or puddling in your lawn may signify drainage problems.

Do you have soggy spots in your yard where those little puddles stand, leaving ugly dead grass or bare earth? Or do you find little gullies carving up your landscape design, leaving plants with roots being exposed? If so, then you likely have erosion & drainage control problems.

We offer drainage and erosion control strategies to help you keep your yard and property unharmed by the elements.

Here in mid-Missouri, we have lots of slopes and hills, many of them rather steep. They can create a challenge to the health and safety of your lawn and property, as they can be greatly affected by runoff and erosion. Loss of topsoil can become problematic for your landscape.

Often we cannot see the immediate effects of erosion, but this does not mean it isn’t happening. It can be a slow and subtle process. We can help you identify problem areas of which you may not be aware.

Use retaining walls for erosion control
Terraced retaining walls help to control erosion at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Furthermore, much of the rainfall in our area comes in heavy downpours. This cause a lot of runoff from our lawns, landscape, and hillsides. We can lose important topsoil and its helpful nutrients and microorganisms.

A few of the tools we use to address your erosion or drainage issues are retaining walls, terraces, riprap, mulching and strategic use of grasses and other plants.

Many of the hills and slopes here at Lake of the Ozarks adjoin stream sides and shorelines. These areas are very important to keep intact.
