Ways to Prevent Soil Erosion
Choosing the Method for You
Ways to Prevent Soil Erosion:
The four most common soil erosion prevention methods are vegetation, geotextiles, mulch, and retaining walls.
Vegetation: The simplest and most natural way to prevent erosion control is through planting vegetation. Plants establish root systems, which in turn, stabilises the soil, preventing erosion.
Geotextiles: Using geotextiles is an effective method by itself as it stabilises soil. When used in conjunction with growing vegetation, it is even more effective. There are three main types of geotextiles: woven, nonwoven, and coir. Ready to get to know ways to prevent soil erosion?
Mulch/Fertilizer: Applying a layer mulch to the soil top allows the soil to slowly soak up water, protects against rain impact, and restores pH levels.
Retaining Walls: Retaining walls can be built around the area of erosion to prevent water run off, which leads to further erosion. If used with other methods, this can be very effective.
