Erosion Control

Here is a wonderful experiment demonstrated by the Landscape Architect Network. Here is shown the differences in water quality between grass, mulch, and dirt. You can see the difference in water clearness with the grass compared to the container with just soil. This goes to show how much grass does hold the soil from eroding into our water sources (grass works as a great water filter as well).

For more information, please check out the original article at this link.
