Learning how to prevent soil erosion can save you a lot of money, time, and grief on your property. Erosion happens when the topsoil layer on your land lifts or lifts away to expose the base or the next layer of soil's underlying base. If the topsoil layer that has lifted away is not quickly replaced, it can erode into the next layer of soil and so on. Once eroding, this eroding can occur for many years until the topsoil beneath the topsoil is wholly lost. This process can dramatically decrease your property's value because it destroys the structure that keeps your foundation in place.
Soil erosion can be prevented by using proper tools and proper procedures when you are landscaping or building. If you are not familiar with the proper steps, then you should hire an experienced landscaper who can help you solve these problems before they happen. Some of the tools you will need to purchase include: bags of fiberglass, steel wool, landscape tiller, hoes, rakes, shovels, plows, brushes, and some rubber mulch. In addition to these tools, you will also need training on how to prevent soil erosion from knowing what to do in each situation. If you are still unsure about preventing soil erosion on your property, you may want to call a soil scientist who can help you plan the best solutions for your particular problem.
Preventing soil erosion involves more than just planting trees and plants to protect your foundation's base from eroding. It is also necessary to keep the soil moist enough in areas that are prone to eroding. You will want to pay close attention to the vegetation and shrubs that you have around your home. These things will naturally help to slow down or even stop soil erosion. However, they will not be able to save your foundation from completely eroding. Properly maintaining your lawn and garden, adding some smaller stones, and using mulch will help prevent soil erosion.
