PRO TIP: Silt Fence needs to be installed properly in order to work effectively, if you’re not sure what to do talk to an expert. Your fence should be cut into the ground, not laid on top. It should be staked every 2 metres. Heavy build up areas could require more stakes, and also in some cases a double barrier. Silt fence is commonly used in conjunction with silt socks, biodegradable erosion matting and other principle erosion control products to create a system that’s manageable and wont stack the load on one product or perimeter barrier.
