About Us

Founder Has Roots As A Home Builder

Gregory M. Vreeland, CPESC #2593, is the founder of Erosion Runner.

Greg got his education at Wright State University.  Choosing to build his career as a Luxury Home Builder from 1976-1995, he gradually made the transition to a Land Developer from 1988 to present.

Greg became interested in sediment control while as a developer.  He saw how labor intensive the installation of silt fence was and decided he could figure out a better way.

Patents Held On His Revolutionary Designs

Erosion Runner holds four patents for their silt fence installing equipment — with another patent pending.

His equipment installs the fence without the need of a shovel or sledge hammer.

This revolutionary idea caused him to out-perform his competition in both timeliness and quality of installation.

Through his company, Erosion Runner Inc., he operates crews in the Midwest with plans for future expansion.  Find out more about business opportunities.

“We have used Erosion Runner for all our silt fence needs.  They are prompt and efficient, and always make sure they understand what we need before they begin.  With all the hassles that can be on a job-site it’s nice to have an aspect that is never a concern.  The quality service and lowest prices are why we have never thought of going anywhere else.”
