Protecting Your Wood Fence from Soil Erosion

Protecting Your Wood Fence from Soil Erosion

How can you prevent soil erosion in your yard, and how can you make sure your wood fence stays intact longer?

During the fall, heavy rains can cause your yard to turn into a mud pit. As we discussed before, soil erosion can do incredible damage to your wood fence. How can you prevent soil erosion in your yard, and how can you make sure your wood fence stays intact longer? Just follow these tips, and everything should be fine!

Add Some Plants

One of the biggest culprits behind soil erosion is that your yard itself needs some new plant life. New flowers and trees can help fertilize the soil and protect it from getting blown away or turned into mud. Roots will stay in place longer, and any excess amounts of water will be easily absorbed. Soil erosion can be especially bad if your wood fence is set in your sloped yard. But be sure to choose new plants that are native to the soil you have, so they can adapt better.

Use Mulch

Mulching season might not be until late winter or early spring, but you can get a head start right now. Mulch and fertilizer alike can improve pH levels of the soil around your wood fence. What does this mean? Not only will the soil be much healthier but it can also help to regulate the levels of erosion as well.

Landscape Around Your Fence

Our last suggestion is to try landscaping around your fence. The first two tips we recommended can be seen as part of the process. However, you can deal with water runoff by adding some new features to your yard in addition to a fence. Stones, terraces, and retaining walls are just some ideas you could try. This way, you can prevent puddles and other forms of water damage from affecting your fence, which is great news for you during the grey, rainy days of fall and winter.
