We have talked in other areas within this same site about erosion and how it is a naturally occurring process that can be accelerated by other types of factors. Now, because these different types of factors can come into play we recommend that you get your soil checked out regularly. There are going to be obvious signs down the line, where we know that the soil has eroded and it is affecting a property. The idea behind this service though is to be able to monitor soil erosion to make sure that we can anticipate these types of shifts!
What Type of Soil Sits Around Your Home?
Ever since people stopped growing their own food they pretty much forgot to check the type of soil that is sitting on their property. It may seem like something that is a bit outdated but knowing the type of soil that you are standing on can really help us anticipate how much the soil is going to shift at any given time. Of course, the process of finding this out is relatively easy. All that you really have to do is take a sample and analyze it!
How Was The Home Built?
A lot of times what construction companies will do is that they dig up a large hole to set up the home’s foundation and make sure that the home is going to be sitting pretty. When they go to refill the hole that they have made they will use a different type of soil than the one that was already in place. Knowing that, can also give you a lot of insight into the type of benefits or issues that your home may be facing down the line. It is a little bit like digging up the past here!
Water is one of the elements that you always have to take into account when you are building any type of structure. The natural flow of water through or around your home can definitely affect the way that soil around it is going to erode. A big part of our erosion control services is knowing what the different external factors are, like rain, drain issues, shifts in the ground or even new buildings being built in the area and how they can affect your property! As we mentioned knowing that we will be able to truly anticipate how erosion is going to impact your property.
How Often Do I Need To Check My Soil?
That is actually a great question. As we mentioned once we have identified the possible threats and we made sure that you were “protected” against them what we could recommend is that you give us a call around twice a year to be able to account for any types of shifts in the ground. That way we will be able to compare that with our predictions or the natural parameters and spot a potential problem before it actually becomes a reality. Find out much more details about our company.
