Eroding Issues


Hey Guys and Gals,

What would you guys suggest on helping erosion around my house? I'm going to install gutters but would you suggest bringing in dirt before doing any landscaping work? Open to any landscaping ideas, such as best plants to plant and other ways to stop this from happening again. Thanks!

Re: Eroding Issues


Installing gutters and piping the downspouts away from the house should eliminate or at least greatly reduce any erosion. I'd only bring in dirt if it's either needed to get plants to grow better or to correct the grade [if water runs toward the house]

Gutters, downspouts and some piping would eliminate most of the issues right off the bat.

Re: Eroding Issues


Roots in the dirt prevents erosion.
