Good morning Dr. Marroquin,

Welcome to your updates page!  Where you can watch the projects developing on your property.

The first pic below is of the lowest elevation on your property.  The point where soil loss is worse, as evidenced by the rainwater channels below; you can see how the soil is being carried away.  It needs a triple line of Vetiver and swale to put a stop to the huge losses of irreplaceable Soil.
