Stop Erosion and Stop Sediments From Moving With Our Silt Fence
Our Silt Fences stop Erosion Damage and Prevent Sediments carried by sheet water flow from leaving the site and entering natural drainage ways or storm drainage systems by slowing storm water run-off. Our Silt Fences Utilize Woven Polypropylene Fabric that is strong and durable and will last a long time, it also captures all sediment while letting the unwanted water flow through and go somewhere else.
Silt Fencing is designed as a dual-purpose protection. Not only do Silt Fences help with Erosion Control, but they are also extremely important for sediment control. Silt Fencing is great for keeping sediment out of the waterways and storm drains, which prevents flooding issues and other problems with sediment dispersal.

Step-By-Step Instructions For Installing A Silt Fence
Step 1: Lay Out a Path and mark the path for your Silt Fence, knowing that it is intended to prevent Silt from Washing Downhill off your worksite. You then install your Silt Fence in line with, not perpendicular to the contour of your site. Install the fence run below the areas you're disturbing. Also avoid creating U-Shaped fenced-in low spots where rainwater and sediment could collect there.
Step 2: Dig a Trench for the entire run of your Silt Fence that is at least 4 inches deep. A V-Shaped trench is the easiest if you're digging by hand. But a 4"x4" square trench works as well.
Step 3: Set the Stakes as you move along burying the bottom of the silt fence fabric, pound the fence stakes into the ground every eight feet. We used a 10-lb. maul. Silt fence should stand at least 14 inches above the ground; check the regulations in your area. Where two sections of silt fence meet, overlap the fence ends to cover a span of two posts.
Step 4: Backfill the Trough you dug and make sure the uphill side of the silt fence fabric is buried and underground. Use a Compactor and Tamp the Soil firmly over the fabric. You don't have to place the dirt behind the fabric and the stakes. Just make sure that all of the stakes are solidly in the ground to keep the fence from collapsing and causing damage to the area that you are working in.
