Silt Fence Detail Installation

silt fencingFor most construction sites dealing with sheet flow, silt fencing is installed by excavating a trench and securing the bottom of the fabric into the trench. Fabric is usually buried about six inches (6") to help withstand water, sediment and increased weight. Posts should be attached to the fencing and then placed into the ground.

Recommended Spacing

Spacing for the posts may vary depending on your location, water build up and fabric type. For most locations, post should be placed no more than 8-10 feet apart. For areas with heavy water requirements or heavy duty fabric, stakes should be placed closer together (5-6 ft. spacing).


For the most effective silt control, each erosion control silt fence should be placed in two rows that are spaced approximately three feet (3') apart. This provides a back up row of fencing for your construction site.


All fencing should be inspected regularly after each rainfall even and when there is significant build up on the curtain.
