Since our property has areas with steep inclines, we have a pretty big problem with erosion. We have lots of rocks in the soil which just roll down the hills when it rains. So far nothing has damaged our vehicles yet :) To try and remedy this naturally, I am transplanting ivy and a purple oyster plants up the hills. These are all over our property and I have just been digging up the plant with some of the roots and planting them directly in the new spots. It is amazing how quickly this roots and grows here! Below are some pictures of what I have going so far.
We have many different trees on the property including mahogany, genip, banana, tan-tan, and ornamental trees. We also have lots of tropical plants such as ivy, plumeria, hibiscus, palm trees, and umbrella trees. We do still have the cannon so watch out! Of course we have it because it is too heavy to move and not because it works :) But we can pretend... Arrgh!
