With all the expected rain from this El Nino system, here is a little information and links on erosion control shared by Beth Prinz a Garden Club Friend .
One plant to look into, which had some work done on it for erosion control properties at the Desert Research Institute in Nevada, is Kurapia. For information on this low water use groundcover see the report by UC Davis.
