|Many plants have extensive root systems which hold soil in place and the following are tolerant of moist places: Dichondra (very low maintenance), Partridge berry (Mitchella repens), or Tripsacum floridana (Florida Gama Grass). These plants will help slow soil erosion and you can use your weed wacker if they grow too high. Hope this information helps!
