The Master Gardener℠ volunteers in McDowell County will be presenting a program on Erosion Control and Retaining Walls on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. at the McDowell Senior Center, 100 Spaulding Rd, Marion.

While we can’t control the rain itself, we can employ some landscaping strategies to direct the path of the water and reduce garden and property damage. Since erosion is a common problem in our hilly residential areas, a first defense against the destructive effects of rain runoff is to stabilize slopes. Come learn about some effective techniques for homeowners to prevent erosion on your property based on the steepness of your terrain.
