Controlling soil erosion in a horticultural setting

Soil erosion in a horticultural setting is typically due to water (e.g. erosion by rainwater runoff in a heavy storm) but it can also be gravity (steep slopes) or wind ("dust bowl").

Use this tag for questions about controlling erosion. This may include inert solutions (e.g. wooden barriers) and/or plant solutions (e.g. drought-tolerant long-rooted grasses).
