Erosion is quite common in Northern Colorado. It is the natural process of soil moving from one location to another, usually by water or gravity. This process is more common in steep landscapes and, in some cases, can result in landslides and dirt flow. Erosion is also known as sedimentation and this process is sped up by new housing developments. Erosion can really drive down the property value in a neighborhood, so it is very important to keep erosion under control by implementing a retaining wall. It is very important that new home builders consider erosion planning when building a new development.
