Contour Stone Lines slow down runoff, increase water infiltration, and sediment is captured behind these semi-permeable barriers, improving production. A perennial grass can supplement the lines where stone is scarce. Suited to low slopes, high runoff and hand labour. This technique is readily adopted by resource-poor farmers and can lead to a harvest even in years with low and erratic rainfall.

Pile your old branches and fallen trees into raised beds, cover with soil and plant your garden. Over time, the wood decomposes, leaving nutrient rich soil.

Best and worst woods for Hugelkultur garden  Some of the more desirable woods are:  Alders  Apple  Birch  Cottonwood  Poplar  Willow  Less desirable woods include:    Cedar – lasts long because of natural anti microbial properties  Black walnut – contains the toxin juglone  Black locus – resistant to rotting, may be more useful in humid areas  Pine and fur – both contain tannins

In swales, stormwater is slowed by strategic placement of check-dams that encourage ponding and these ponds in turn facilitates water quality improvements through infiltration, filtration and sedimentary deposition. Collected stormwater is expected to drain away through the soil within several hours or days.
