Ways to Prevent Soil Erosion - Winston-Salem/Forsyth …www.wsfcs.k12.nc.us
Applying Mulches: Mulching soil, greatly help in soil erosion control. Mulching is done by putting dead leaves and shredded wood on the soil. Mulching acts as a protective covering for the tree and plants against extreme weathers. Mulching allows water to reach the soil slowly, and thus reduce the impact of rainfall or heavy watering. ...
