Don’t allow your precious topsoil to wash away in Winter runoff! Soil conservation should be a top priority for all landowners. High rainfall and bare soil will lead to severe erosion, washing away your land’s most precious resource—its topsoil. All of these mixes will re-seed at the end of their growing cycle to maintain the cover for future years. Though not required, initial irrigations will hasten establishment. On steep slopes, the use of a thin straw mulch will also help the seeds get started. Many people use jute netting or burlap to stabilize the soil after the seed is planted.
