How to Identify Soil Erosion

How to Identify Soil Erosion

Whether you own a home or a business, soil erosion can ruin your landscape.

Whether you own a home or a business, soil erosion can ruin your landscape. The soil is vital for growing strong plants like bushes and helping any trees lining your property thrive. Here’s how you can find the symptoms of your soil eroding.

Bare Patches

One way to confirm the possibility of soil erosion is to look for bare patches on your landscape. One indicator is there are areas where nothing can grow, not even trees. If this is the case, then something is wrong with the soil. As a result, you might also see the soil piling up by itself in these spots, even though there’s nothing there.

Rocks Showing

Rocks and boulders can be attractive additions to your landscape. This is true whether you’re trying to increase the curb appeal around your home or make your commercial landscape more inviting. But sometimes you’ll start to see too many rocks popping up out of the ground. This can make your walking paths hard to walk over and soon your customers and visitors will start complaining. Unfortunately, this is another big sign that you have soil erosion problems.

You See Roots

Another problem you’ll have to deal with is when the roots start to show. Think about it this way: when you dye your hair, you don’t want the roots to show because your natural hair color is bound to be a different color than the one you add to your heard. The same principle applies to your landscape. The roots might be parched from being too dry, or the topsoil has been blown away by the wind. In any case, these are also signs that you are dealing with soil erosion.
