    Yeah I'm going heavy with the straw on the slopes. I'm lucky the homeowner at the end where the fill is will let me use his driveway to bring all my straw and blower down. He was so excited for us to bring all the dirt down his way. He now as a back yard instead of a cliff!

    up in these parts townships have codes that state any disturbed area can not have a finished slope of anything greater then 3:1 if it is to have grass planted and 2:1 if it is not having grass planted but rather shrubbery....anything steeper needs to either be terraced or go through months of approval...

    i like the way you guys do it down there too....if we ran regular silt fence that close to a stream and not super silt fence the conservation district would be all over our ass

    This is actually the first time I've put up silt fence with stell post and wire. I usually just buy the cheap crap from lowes with the wooden post already stapled on. It's just for looks anyway.LOL

    City said stay 30' from the creek. Well I am in some places. Thats why we did this near the holidays, Get in, Get out, and get r done, all before they return to work.

    There has been a few jobs that I worked on where we needed a silt fence. The rules and regulations about working around a creek that fish use can be a little strict.

    Around here you don't want the dept of fisheries guy mad at you. Anytime something has to be done around a creek its done in a dry season so there is no chance of run off into the creek from the rain. If it does start rainning them the work is put off till the rain stops.

    There is times of the year when the fish are spawning you can't even work near the creeks.
