Whenever it rains, the water runs off hard surfaces and threatens environmental damage. This is mainly because it picks up and concentrates pollutants that have accumulated on the asphalt or concrete since the last time it rained. Since the environment is then hit with this accumulation all at once, damage occurs.
Erosion is another problem that is caused by runoff. Whenever large quantities of water move across the ground, soil and other natural substances are picked up and carried off. Over time, channels develop from this activity and mar the landscape. In the most severe cases, entire chunks of earth can be removed and sent downhill.
Pour On: The Solution to Landscape Runoff
Pour On eliminates the need for the use of hard surfaces for walkways and similar landscape elements. It binds gravel and similar loose aggregates without sealing them, and this lets water run through the gaps when it rains instead of gushing away. Since the water is no longer being concentrated into just a few drainage points, the problem of erosion is solved. The lack of water concentration also ensures that rehydrated materials don’t all end up in the same place, so the environment isn’t overwhelmed by pollutants.
With the gravel bound together by Pour On, you don’t have to worry about it getting kicked over the lawn or otherwise being disturbed. Instead, it’ll retain its well-groomed appearance for the life of the product. Even better, it’ll look completely natural since Pour On soon loses the shine of your initial application. You will end up with a great-looking landscape and no problems associated by water gushing away when it rains or from when you run your sprinklers.
