SlopeGrid is the perfect solution when you are concerned about controlling erosion and protecting slopes. Soil erosion occurs naturally on all land. On steeper slopes erosion can occur more quickly especially if water is not attenuated. Water, wind, and gravity work together to displace unprotected soil. Limited ground cover and slopes cleared of vegetation from earlier fires or severe weather events increase the chances of further erosion. Severe weather events increase the rate and magnitude of future erosion on unprotected slopes. SlopeGrid cellular confinement system is an economical long-term solution consisting of a giant blanket of connected cells which fortify the earth, preventing erosion, soil migration, and damaging shifting forces due to the forces of water and wind.

- establishing vegetation on steep slopes
