Good environmental stewardship, good property management and great aesthetics all go together, and make solid financial sense. Taking care of your land should achieve the highest level of natural values, but it is also a practical decision to achieve practical solutions.
Controlling erosion enhances the quality of habitat value of streams and wetlands, while it preserves the value of your property.

Well maintained natural plant communities not only have higher habitat value, they are more beautiful to look at.
