Soil Erosion

Webster’s Dictionary defines erosion as the action or process of eroding or the state of being eroded. This erosion can occur as a cause of natural events such as water, wind, and other natural driving forces.

Water is one of those natural driving forces. Soil erosion can be a bad thing because it can create large canyons and valleys. We need soil to grow crops, grow pasture for our livestock, and we need a good foundation for buildings, homes and roadways.

The good news, we can help protect our soil by planting native plants. Your plants will help hold the soil in place because of its large root systems. Take a look at the video below to see how a plant system can prevent soil erosion.
