Construction Photography: Hillside Restoration

When you live on an eroding hillside, you’ve got a problem. Whenever it rains, valuable topsoil is being carried away.

This past Sunday, members of the Watershed Management Group’s co-op program were hard at work, restoring a homeowner’s hillside. The goal is to prevent erosion and stabilize the hillside so that native plants can grow on it. The plants were installed by WMG co-opers, and they will help shade and cool the property.

Like other WMG projects, this one involved a lot of gravel shoveling…
