Installing rain gardens, adding mulch, planting flora that stabilizes the soil, and constructing retaining walls and terraces are all essential erosion control services. When water rushes through your yard, plants help keep the soil securely in place. Daylilies and sages are two flowering plants that offer colorful options for soil stability.
On modest slopes, mulching may reduce erosion.
The soil is protected, the surface area is increased, and water penetration is improved by spreading wood chips or pine needles at a depth of two to three inches. In regions where heavy downpour disrupts other mulching materials, you can also use stone, gravel, and river rock mulch to anchor soil. Mulching flower beds and the areas around shrubs and trees helps to combat landscape erosion.
Watering gardens with rainwater diverted from roof downspouts to help prevent erosion is also helpful. Rain gardens hold water in place so that it can slowly seep into the ground and irrigate plants instead of destroying the soil. Water runoff is slowed down even further by placing stones on the low side of rain gardens.
