K Kairi Gainsborough 5 years ago I really like what you had to say about reducing erosion on your property. A couple years ago, my parents moved into a lakeside house, so this is something they need to start learning about. In the few years they have been there, I’ve already noticed their backyard is shrinking due to erosion. There are services that can help rebuild the shoreline, but it’s up to them to keep it from getting washed away again. I will be sure to pass on your tip about planting native plants to help stabilize the soil.
