Meadowview Open Space Rehabilitation

Erosion mitigation and soil improvement recommendations for 390+ acres

Identifying and Designing Treatments for Broad Scale Soil Erosion

Meadowview HOA, located in Temecula, CA, owns and manages 398 acres of open space meadows consisting of rolling hills and large amounts of concentrated storm water runoff from the surrounding hardscape.

We were contracted to review the existing erosion issues across the site and develop a comprehensive treatment plan and cost estimate for rehabilitation. This process took over a year to complete and many hours of diligent work by Neil Bertrando. In the end, we delivered a exhaustive report and presentation along with treatment maps to help the HOA tackle the issues of trail erosion, relocation and soil rehabilitation.

We also had great support and help from Teri and Kurt of the Meadowview HOA Board and from Partners for Fish and Wildlife.

Open space meadows surrounded by roughly one acre single-family home parcels. Large volumes of storm water are routed through the open space which has caused severe erosion. EA was tasked with identifying and prioritizing treatment areas, providing erosion control training to volunteers and coordinators, and doing a cost estimation analysis for all treatments.

"I have a very challenging hillside landscape projects that have been turned down by multiple companies, but Ecology Artisans took on the task and did a wonderful job. They helped me install some drip irrigation systems that are easy on the slope to prevent any soil erosion due to pooling. The job was done in one day, and Josh and his crew did a fantastic job. I feel that I was very well-informed along the way and will definitely work with them again for any of my future project." - Joe
