Water is a powerful force.
Little by little, it’s washing away your commercial property’s topsoil.
Over time, this erosion can damage your parking lots and building foundations, expose tree roots and wash dangerous pollutants into your neighboring water sources.
All of this means stress for both you and your budget.

Here’s a look at the best commercial erosion control companies in the Memphis area:
Reel Neet Erosion Control
Reel Neet actually started out as a joke between friends: a “real neat” idea to start cutting grass for people they knew.
That’s how Reel Neet Erosion Control began — as a lawn service in 1992 with two men and a lawn mower, edger and weed eater.
The owners decided to diversify in the mid-1990s when they realized the demand for erosion and sediment control services.
By 2008 Reel Neet began working in the energy corridor, including working on pipelines by bush hogging and repairing erosion issues.
Reel Neet offers earth work, environmental and restoration work for the pipeline industry.
A highlight of their work involves land clearing without the mess and headache that big machines cause. They use grinding machines that grind and mulch a tree from the top to the ground, leaving behind a bed of mulch.
Midsouth Erosion Control and Landscaping
Located in Byhalia, MS, Midsouth specializes in erosion control, offering silt fences; temporary and permanent hydroseeding; grassing; sodding; inlet protection; agricultural lime; erosion control matting; certified erosion control inspections and bush hogging services.
Midsouth also works as a subcontractor for Michael Hatcher & Associates.
Southern Erosion Control
Southern Erosion Control And Landscaping is a landscaping company based in Byhalia.
While their business title highlights erosion control, the company, formed in 2006, also offers a host of landscaping-related services.
They offer brush removal; brick and stone driveway installation; irrigation; landscape design and maintenance; gas pipe repair; landscape lighting, outdoor kitchen construction, land clearing and more.

At Michael Hatcher & Associates, our experience in preventing erosion before it starts sets us apart as one of the best commercial erosion control companies in Memphis.
While the silt fence has become a standard in erosion control, it’s a temporary fix.
We have a lot of other solutions up our sleeve.
Our methods are designed to prevent the most common erosion problems on commercial properties, from washed out parking lots to steep slopes to drainage issues.
Some of our erosion control methods include:
- Concrete swales collect the water that flows off your paved area and direct it down concrete channels where you want it to go.
- Rain gardens installed in a low area of your property encourage stormwater to soak slowly into the ground instead of flowing directly into storm drains.
- Retention basins collect water from rain and runoff and release it slowly, preventing flooding or erosion. Strategic plant material slows down the water flow and protect the pond by holding soil on the bottom and at the water’s edge, which reduces erosion.
- Re-grading low spots directs water flow away from buildings instead of pooling where it shouldn’t.
- Permeable materials like porous concrete, permeable pavers, and gravel systems allow water to filter through, rather than wash off concrete or asphalt.
- A terraced system of plants installed on your property’s steep slope can break up the slope and slow down water and soil. Slopes are big erosion problem areas, as water rushes down them.
You get the idea — we have lots of creative, hard-working solutions to prevent erosion that are perfectly suited for the issues on your commercial property.
When it’s time for you to choose a top-notch erosion control company to handle your property’s needs, do your research, ask questions, see who’s the best fit for you.
Make an informed decision. We wish you the best and hope you decide the best is us.
