Slope instability and erosion of the soil by water and wind are major environmental hazards. Although they are result of natural geomorphological processes, they are both affected by and have consequences for human activity often incurring economic and social damage. The main objective of this study is to determine the costs of slope consolidation by using different methods. There were studied four techniques for slope consolidation: vegetation, gabions, nets biodegradable jute expanded clay and vegetation, respectively geotextiles. The economic efficiency was determined on an area of 100 m2 for each case under study. Based on the obtained results, the variant represented by nets biodegradable jute expanded clay and vegetation had a total cost of 4735.12 lei, the cost per square meter of consolidated area being of 47.35 lei. This variant offers a pleasant aspect of the slopes and does not involve very high costs, compared to the variant represented by the arrangement of slopes with gabions.
