This article provided by Las Pilitas Nursery in Santa Margarita California, informs the reader on what can cause erosion and how to control it. Before one even starts gardening on a slope or hillside they must look for signs that could cause erosion. One such sign is drainage. Water moving down the slope creates a greater chance for erosion to develop. The slope or hillside must also be stable. If the hillside has mud on rock or clay than erosion is likely to occur and a mudslide could also develop. The slope or hillside should not only be stable but also not to steep. If an individual cannot walk up the hillside than that is a sign that erosion could emerge. The main solution to stabilizing these slopes and hillsides is establishing a retaining wall or supporting them with boulders and logs. The plating also needs to be a mix of different groundcovers such as shrubs and trees. These tactics will help to stop erosion from occurring, which will lead to beautiful plants being able to prosper on the hillsides of different countries.
How can we use the tactics given by the nursery combined some open soruce technology to create the best farming environment?
