residential erosion control solutions

Residential soil erosion prevention is vital to a development’s long-term viability and success—but residents don’t want to live on or near ugly erosion solutions like rock riprap. InstaTurf provides the soil protection of hard armor solutions like rock riprap, without all the associated disadvantages of hard armor. InstaTurf is safe for people to be on and around so residents can enjoy all their favorite community spaces all year long.

Green - All Year Long

Don’t sacrifice the curb appeal of your development to enjoy the benefits of premium erosion protection. InstaTurf can offer the best of both worlds.

The molded-in green color and simulated grass texture of InstaTurf products provide a pleasing aesthetic while promoting vegetation growth through the permeable structure. Residents will enjoy a lush and green development from day one and you can rest assured that your investment will be protected from soil erosion.

Safe For People

Rocks are the perfect hiding spot for snakes—and a perfect recipe for twisted ankles and unwanted liability. Don’t burden your development with these risks. Install InstaTurf and you will not only eliminate hiding spots for unwanted pests, but you’ll also provide a secure place for people while protecting soil for the long-term.

InstaTurf provides residential soil erosion control that secures into the soil and real vegetation can grow up through it. Once vegetation grows, InstaTurf hybrid turf will all but disappear, but your investment will still be protected from erosion.

Costs Less Than Rock

The costs of new developments are skyrocketing—but soil erosion protection is an area where you can likely save money without sacrificing performance.

InstaTurf is a fraction of the weight of rock and requires considerably fewer trucks and people to install. InstaTurf allows developers to cut costs in both installation and maintenance. Ditch the rock and stay on budget with InstaTurf.
