Gravel Berm

When we rebuilt this road, we had the contractor blade the gravel base course into a berm along the edge. This created a berm to project the bare area on the left from erosion caused by runoff from the roadway.

The gravel berm was bladed smooth just before installing a curb along the edge of the road. The bare soil was hydroseeded with bonded fiber matrix.

By using the gravel in this way, we avoided installing silt fence, preventing the soil disturbance that causes and keeping a bunch of plastic out of the landfill at the end of the project.

The compost soil amendment was recycled yard waste. It was placed, tilled 8 to 12 inches into the existing soil, then trackwalked. Bonded fiber matrix was applied with seed and fertilizer. It was placed at the end of summer so we watered it with a water truck fitted with an adjustable fire nozzle.
