The purpose of a silt fence is to retain the soil on disturbed land, such as a construction site. A silt fence is a temporary sediment barrier made of porous fabric held up by wooden or metal posts driven into the ground. The fabric ponds sediment-laden stormwater runoff and prevents it from entering streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes.

Proper placement of fencing is important because where a fence starts, runs, and ends is critical to its effectiveness. Let the experts at Garrett's Landscape & Grading aid you in effective design, installation, and removal of silt fencing! See a sample of silt fencing projects we have completed in our gallery below.
