Level Things Out
If part of the yard is on a slope, it pays to level things out. That way, the water doesn’t run down the hill and rush into the garden. Leveling a slope takes a professional little time to do and provides you with a great deal of return on investment. It’s something that you won’t need to do again once leveling occurs as long as erosion doesn’t take place.
Invest in Plants That Prevent Flooding
Learn which plants are native to the area that help with flooding. Then, plant them outdoors in your backyard. They’ll soak up most of the water that comes into contact with them, preventing it from washing away your garden’s soil. You’ll have thriving plants that love the rain and no fear of losing the vegetables and herbs that you took the time to nurture the past few months.
Put Down Mulch in the Garden
It creates a barrier that prevents the plant from washing away. Mulch is organic, too, and easy to apply. An ample layer spread throughout the garden serves as a form of protection for it. You’ll have less to worry about when mulch is present.
Plant Absorbent Grass
Some grasses are heavy drinkers. They require a lot of water to thrive. They’re not appropriate for areas of the country that experience droughts. The grass loves rainwater and absorbs most of it, which helps keep your garden from washing away.
