oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Treatments for adapting difficult slopes for grassing

Volume 15, Issue 11
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



Major earthworks often expose sloped areas where soil conditions are unfavourable for grass growth. Because of the excessive costs of protecting these relatively steep areas from erosion with pbysical structures, specialized treatments have been developed to aid the establishment of a protective vegetative cover. These methods are descriptionbed, together with a break-down of costs. The final choice of method will depend on local objectives, agronomic factors and direct and indirect costs.
