Erosion Control and Slope Restoration
If you own property on a hillside, you may have special landscaping needs. Landscaping
for erosion control and slope stability is common in the Seattle area.
Landscaping a Steep Hillside
Slope restoration provides a stability for hills prone to erosion and landslides
through a combination of steep hill landscaping, deep-rooting plants, a strategically
placed water drainage systems, hillside terraces, and specially designed retaining walls.
For more information about hillside landscaping services offered by Environmental Construction Inc., view our Water Drainage and Retaining Walls webpages.
When stabilizing a hillside, we often use heavy granite rock and plants with a root system that will hold the ground in place and grows will in our wet climate.
If you have made changes to your yard during the summer months which has affected
water run-off or have been experiencing erosion control problems over a period of time, you may need
a complete slope restoration.

Typical Slope Restoration Disclaimer:
Hillsides in this area are subject to unknown forces. Landslides have repeatedly
occurred in the Puget Sound region and, by definition, these events occur in unstable
areas. Environmental Construction, Inc. therefore disclaims any and all liability,
whether for consequential damage or otherwise, that may occur during or after completion
of this project as a result of our hillside work. ECI's concern when entering into
a hillside restoration project is that we create a long-term stable situation on
your hillside. Toward that end we strongly suggest that you employ a soils engineer
to make recommendations and set standards for your project. ECI only warranties
that our workmanship will follow the recommendations made by your soils engineer.
