Abstract

The use of close-growing plants, such as in grass sod, is a long-established technique for controlling soil erosion. This approach serves two purposes: (1) the fine root system of sod holds soil in place, thereby reducing its susceptibility to erosion, and (2) the plants slow the velocity of water flow, which reduces the sediment-carrying capacity of the water
