Most cities are enforcing vegetation establishment before before a outfall ditch is turned over to the city. This minimizes the city's expenses maintaining the ditch after the developer has turned it over to the city. The above photos show before and after shots of the same ditches.

Roadside Ditches

Foxtail Millet, Annual Ryegrass and Bermuda planted on Holly Road Ditch in Corpus Christi preventing slope erosion. The Foxtail Millet and Annual Ryegrass will go away over time and the Bermuda Grass will be the permanent grass. The Bermuda Grass is very drought tolerant, excellent for erosion control and enhances the looks of the property.

You probably can't see the ditch to the left of this hike and bike project. Again, we combined a much needed outfall ditch for a subdivision and created a 1,200 feet long hike and bike area. The grass was established through hydro-seeding/hydro-mulching and some trees, playgrounds, benches and lights were installed thus maximizing the value of the subdivision and not wasting valuable real estate.

This man made lake needed vegetation to prevent erosion of the banks. We hydro-mulched this lake and a few weeks later...
