Generally silt fence is made with per attached stakes stabled to the fabric.
The silt fence material is made of synthetic fabric such as nylon or polyethylene type weave yarn.
Silt fence is a type of fence that consists of a mesh type of geotextile fabric.
Silt fence is used as a temporary control of storm water runoff around or at any construction site or any excavated site where the soil has been dug up or disturbed.
When silt fence is installed the bottom of the fence should be about 6″ below the top of the ground level and the bottom should be covered with soil, place the soil over the fence bottom to hold it in place when water runoff rushes against the fence.
Remember if the silt fence is not properly installed the storm water runoff could run under the silt fence or the runoff water could push the silt fence over.
There are different types of silt fence heights used on different jobs to control storm water runoff, heavy water flow areas may need extra support stakes to avoid silt fence failure during heavy storm water flow times.
If silt fences are installed in a high wind area extra maintenance maybe needed, also you may need to install extra stakes to support the fence during the heavy winds, this may prevent the silt fence from being blown over.
Generally the expected life of a silt fence is about 6 to 7 months, remember it is only a temporary water runoff erosion control fence.
