Erosion Control

Our collection of tough and hardy plants includes ground-covers, flowering native shrubs, and grasses, all specifically targeted at reducing soil erosion. Their roots will knit together loose soils and hekp retain moisture and humus. Creating beautiful gardens on challenging terrain or sloping sites is simple using our Erosion Evaders selection of plants.

Here's some useful advice on construction and hard landscaping to prevent soil erosion.
