Erosion Control

Straw: Straw provides immediate protection from surface erosion caused by sudden rainfall, but also a great way to conserve soil moisture for seed germination.  Straw conforms to the soil's surface and provides less chance for soil runoff when applied immediately after the soil has been disturbed. 

Blanket: Erosion Control Mats are a temporary erosion control product designed to help stabilize slopes, banks, hills and other erosion prone areas. These blankets are a natural way to prevent erosion on your project.  There are several different applications that can be used based on the installation.  Our E.C. specialists can help guide you with choosing the right material for the right job.  

Hydro-mulch: Hydroseeding (or hydraulic mulch seeding, hydraseeding, hydro-mulching) is a planting sequence that uses a slurry of mulch and seed. It is often used as an erosion control technique on construction sites, as an alternative to the traditional process of broadcasting or sowing of dry seed.

Design

Drawings: Creative and new ideas that begin at early stages of the process.  As everyone is different, we begin with the initial conversations of the must haves, research our clients requests, and create this vision through landscape plans, details, and sketches that emulate the design.

Once a landscape plan has been chosen, we start to incorporate and develop a new living space, at which our construction crews use these drawings as a document that translates this design into a reality. 

MLI truly loves creating new environments for you and others to enjoy for years to come.

Products:

 

Green Infrastructure

Green Roofs: Or living roof is a roof of a building that is partially or completely covered with vegetation and a growing medium, planted over a waterproofing membrane.

Bioswales: These are landscape elements designed to concentrate or remove silt and pollution from surface runoff water.

Permeable Paving: This product is a range of sustainable materials and techniques for permeable pavements with a base and sub base that allow the movement of storm water through the surface.

Rain Garden: Planted depression or a hole that allows rainwater runoff from impervious urban areas, like roofs, driveways, walkways, parking lots, and compacted lawn areas, the opportunity to be absorbed.

Prairie: Ecosystems considered part of the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome by ecologists, based on similar temperate climates, moderate rainfall, and a composition of grasses, herbs, and shrubs, rather than trees, as the dominant vegetation type.

Wetland Mitigation: This is the preservation, enhancement, restoration or creation (PERC) of a wetland, stream, or habitat conservation area which offsets, or compensates for, expected adverse impacts to similar nearby ecosystems.

Manufactured Soils:   A blend of soils, soil components, amendments used with horticultural applications - to create a desired material for plant material to thrive.
