Profile’s 5 Fundamentals

The foundation to sustainable vegetation

Establishing sustainable vegetation and receiving the earliest possible Notice of Termination (NOT) are the goals of every project. Profile’s 5 Fundamentals are the surest way to get you there. Integrating them into a process that entails proper planning, documentation and execution ensures success and design safety on the projects you undertake.


1. Assessing & Creating Optimal Soil Conditions 

Soil testing provides essential information to determine what adjustments, if any, need to be made to assure a more favorable growing environment for faster, more complete vegetative growth and sustainable establishment. 

Profile provides FREE soil testing to help you create the foundation for success you need.


2. Picking the Right Plant Species

It is essential to select plant species that are adapted to project locations, site conditions, intended use, project seasonality and maintenance requirements. Profile and your distributor will put you in touch with agronomy experts who are qualified to help you select the right plant species to meet the needs of your projects.


3. Selecting the Correct Erosion Control Material 

The right cover is necessary to protect both seed and soil, taking into account the erosion control product’s effectiveness, ability to facilitate growth and the functional longevity required for that protection. Profile is the leading supplier of hydraulically applied erosion control technologies, erosion control blankets and turf reinforcement mats; and as a result, is experienced in helping you balance natural variables and product attributes to effectively achieve project success.


4. Ensuring Proper Installation 

Installing the agronomic additives and erosion control products in accordance with the manufacturer’s mixing and application guidelines will maximize their performance to meet project requirements. Profile provides on-site consultation to assure the products you select are properly installed in accordance with all guidelines.


5. Follow-up Inspections and Maintenance Practices  

Continually monitoring how projects are progressing is the best way to make sure all site requirements and compliance issues are being addressed. Maintenance may be required to mitigate unexpected challenges. Profile professionals can coordinate all inspections. Subsequent inspections can be arranged and maintenance activities conducted after significant precipitation or other potentially damaging weather events.
