Hey friends. I’m finding myself lacking in knowledge of erosion control. No doubt the topic will be a must-learn for me as I look to begin a career in invasive removal and regenerative landscaping. Attached is a pic of the back of my house and deck. The slope of the yard is steeper than it looks. The erosion is starting to look pretty severe and I feel I must act now and at least lay SOMETHING down. We were thinking mulch but are worried about termites. So we‘re considering pine straw. Any downside to pine straw? And what’s the best long term solution?
