Remediation of disturbed land areas is considered necessary if environmentally conscientious beliefs exist. We can now use our knowledge of the unique properties of soil microorganisms to convert disturbed lands into productive ecosystems which are naturally sustainable. Balanced populations of natural, on-site microorganisms coupled with microbial diversity are responsible for nutrient cycling, water retention, healthy soil structure and bioavailability of essential trace nutrients. This model of soil remediation embraces nature rather than ignoring and/or destroying it.!
Establishing sustainable vegetation on difficult and steep slopes with questionable soils in extreme environments is challenging. Challenges exist both in the structural aspect of keeping soil on the slope and developing a sustainable vegetated cover.
Structurally holding the needed depth of topsoil can be achieved using the Geoweb system with unique anchoring methods.
Sustainable vegetation can be achieved with the use of natural site soils and vegetation along with natural soil microorganisms. Growing and applying the numerous types of on-site microorganisms jump starts the natural vegetation to achieve a growth rate up to 90% faster than other systems. The methods we use are 100% natural and site specific.
Revegetating a Steep Rock Slope
Developing a sustainable vegetated surface over a rock face at 4,100 meters above sea level requires (1) structural containment of top soil and (2) proper soil / vegetation micro and macro biology. StableEarth can provide solutions to these extreme problems.

Revegetating a Steep Laterite-Clay Slope
Developing a sustainable vegetated surface over a steep laterite-clay slope requires (1) structural containment of top soil and (2) proper soil / vegetation micro and macro biology. StableEarth can provide solutions to problems such as this.
