Controlling erosion

Using simple rock structures, one can heal eroded stream channels and headcuts and put water back onto meadows to increase production of grasses and wildflowers. If you’d like to learn more, there’s helpful information on Bill Zeedyk’s website and some excellent handouts about the structures on the Watershed Artisan’s website. After you’ve looked at the handouts to get some background, you can view the videos we made of Bill Zeedyk explaining how to build the structures.

This structure that's one rock high slows the speed of water in a stream and raises incised stream channels, so eventually water flows back onto the historic floodplain and increases growth of vegetation.
