Vegetation Barriers Around Headwalls of Edgedrains

The aggregate and concrete barriers cost about the same to construct. The concrete barriers are performing satisfactorily. A few cracks have developed in some concrete barriers. The aggregate barriers after four years of service are becoming overgrown with vegetation. Cut vegetation has a tendency to stay on the headwall where on the concrete barriers it tends to blow off. There have been no maintenance charges claimed for either type of barrier. It appears that concrete barriers will be the best choice in the long term.
