TURF GRASS HAS THE EROSION RETAINING QUALITIES 100 TIMES THAT OF BARE SOIL

RECENT TURF RESEARCH

has clearly shown the value of turfgrass in retaining sediment on slopes and reducing nutrient movement into waterways. As part of a project, it was found that sod was 100 times more effective in keeping soil in place during heavy rainfall than exposed soil. The project monitored soil losses during an eight week period, in January and February 2011 which encompassed a time of extensive flooding in south east Queensland
