Using Turf for Erosion and Sediment Control
Turf grass is an effective and natural measure for controlling erosion and sediment.
The use of vegetative ground cover is well established as the most effective long-term protection measure against erosion on disturbed soil. Turf grass is capable of reducing erosion by protecting the ground from the impact of rainfall. It also reduces the speed of runoff water, holds soil and sediment particles in place and enhances the ground’s ability to absorb water.
