While landslides are dra- matic, erosion control and sediment control are much more common troubles, and Filshill says technological advances in stabilization can make all the difference for superintendents. "If you're a department of transportation or a city, (you) can pour a lot of concrete, create buttress walls, utilize steel sheeting and sheer - ing pins. But a golf course doesn't want to see a big, massive concrete wall down the middle of the fairway," Filshill says. "This is how geo - synthetics come into play to stop catastrophic slides and keep it green at the same time." Geosynthetics are a polymeric material, usually in sheet form, that are used in conjunction with soil as a replacement for traditional building materials. These reinforced plastic materials come in the form of geotextiles and geogrids.
