soil retention for runoff water prevention

Green is greener and usually sustainable! Especially when living green plants replace concrete driveways, retaining walls, sidewalks, and even planting bed borders.

Cost-effective solutions that provide beauty at the same time are worth checking out. Soil Retention Systems, Inc. is a Southern California manufacturer, distributor, designer and installer of plantable blocks. "Fewer blocks per square foot mean lower cost. This is the only 100% plantable block available," says Niklas Jansson, Sales engineer.

In addition to vertical applications, Soil Retention Systems produces "drivable grass", a permeable, flexible and plantable concrete pavement system that increases on-site water storage and minimized water runoff into rivers, lakes and the ocean. This helps solve one of the biggest environmental problems facing our country today.

Alternative top fills can be sand, gravel, artificial grass...or sod in low use areas.

Drivable Grass

The Oceanside Fire Station needed an environmentally friendly solution to their wash down area run-off problem and they solved the problem with "Drivable grass" -- which stood up to the heavy traffic of fire equipment on a daily basis and helped eliminate the runoff that had entered local streams and water systems.

Grass seed can be broadcast over the surface or mixed with the soil mixture. Local nurseries can recommend the right seed species for your climate. (Consider native California tuft grasses!)
