Soil erosion can be a minor process which becomes unnoticed andcauses alarming and serious affects to top soil once discovered.Many factors which contribute to soil erosion include:1. Soil Compaction2. Low Organic Matter3. No Soil Structure4. Poor Irrigation and Drainage5. Soil Acid ProblemsEach factor heavily contributes to soil becoming eroded and they can assist toaccelerate the soil erosion process with the contribution of rain, wind and snow.However soil erosion is a natural process which in some cases is necessary forlandscaping and land vitality.
Soil Erosion Consequences
Soil erosion can be devastating for farm and residential property owners. If soilerosion is not controlled then the following consequences will occur;
Plants, trees and flowers will be deprived of nutrients from soil because the soilwill not be able to contain moisture due to erosion.
The loss of soil material will cause reduced depth for plant and vegetation rootswhich will lead to plant and vegetation death.
Plants will not grow to the full capacity because of no organic cycling caused fromsoil erosion.
