Giving a bit of thought to how you plan and care for your landscaping can greatly reduce soil erosion and at the same time give your home a beautiful appearance. Here are some simple ways you can achieve this:

  • Install retaining walls. Retaining walls constructed in the right design can help channel excess water to reusable use and prevent soil erosion.
  • Slightly delay watering grass during summer. A slight delay will encourage your grass to grow deeper roots in search of water. As well as making it hardier, the roots will help keep the soil together and reduce runoff of the soil during heavy rains.
  • Ensure your mower blades are sharp. When your lawn mower blades are sharpened regularly, they will mow your grass cleanly rather than pluck it from the ground. This will help maintain your grass cover and reduce soil erosion.
