Naples, Florida HydroTurf Ditches
See how Ferguson Waterworks resolved ditch flooding and erosion next to a busy street in Naples, Florida.
Naples, Florida needed an aesthetically pleasing hard-armor system with little to no maintenance.
HydroTurf was selected due to its aesthetically pleasing turf-like appearance and because it will be a low-maintenance option for the city. No more weed whacking or inconvenient mowing!
- Aesthetically pleasing turf-like appearance
- Low maintenance
- Hard-armor system
- Immediate protection against erosion
A section of ditch was chosen to serve as a test to see if this method would be a viable option for the remaining 136 miles of ditches remaining in Naples that need work. These ditches, which experience a lot of flooding and erosion, have begun to be very costly to maintain and repair. The city of Naples desired a permanent hard-armor erosion control system that would cut maintenance costs for the city and stand the test of time and bad storms.
Erosion and flooding in ditches are a very common problem for cities in Florida because of the large rainfall events and hurricanes they are subjected to. For this project, HydroTurf, a hard-armor concrete revetment system delivering significant results in climates where hurricanes and extreme storm events are frequent occurrences, was selected.
