Pro­tect soil from ero­sion

Garden Answers (UK) - - Easy Gardening -

If you have bare ar­eas of soil on your veg­etable beds, cover the ground with a layer of card­board or land­scape fab­ric and weigh it down with bricks or sec­tions of wood so that it doesn’t blow away. This will pro­tect the soil from ero­sion and the loss of nu­tri­ents caused by heavy win­ter rain. It will also stop weed seeds from ger­mi­nat­ing and help it to warm up more quickly in spring.
