We've already seen more than our fair share of gully washers and steady, heavy rainfall this season. And with this wet weather, it's especially important to have grass waterways ready to handle runoff. A grass waterway is an area where grass is left to grow permanently to drain runoff water into designated outlets, without exposing bare soil to erosion.
