Our Welded Wire Steepened Slope System utilizes our 8"x12" or 8"x21" wire wall reinforcement mesh as its primary soil reinforcement and is interlocked with 8"x12" facing mesh (secondary) elements with 3"x3" backing mats. The secondary facing elements are installed 3' along the face at 2.12' vertical increments and incorporated with the primary mats at 4.24' increments. We have prefabricated the facing units to maintain a 1H:1V slope on each 2.12' layer. To build a flatter slope, step (set back) each layer to create the desired slope; this ensures a common lift thickness with the fill while making slope transitions.
The Steepened Slope System enables the landscape architect to incorporate virtually any type of sod or vegetation that will best suit the environment. Low-growth, maintenance-free vegetation is typically specified.
