Soil erosion on a slope or hillside is a major contributor to water runoff.

So it’s very important that homeowners landscaping on slopes or hillsides take steps to protect their soil from erosion and runoff into watersheds downhill that feed surface waters.
During times of drought, we must learn to use water more efficiently to prevent waste of our most precious, life-sustaining resource. Therefore, it’s critical that we use efficient irrigation methods that deliver just the right amount of water to our plants— no more, no less— to keep them healthy and thriving.
A healthy green lawn not only provides a lush and beautiful foundation for landscaping, it also plays a significant role in cleaning the air we breathe. Through a process called photosynthesis, grasses absorb carbon dioxide from the air and store the carbon in the soil.
