"Swales, for example, are shallow channels dug on the contour of a hillside. They slow down the flow of water during rainstorms, preventing it from eroding the landscape, and giving it time to penetrate the soil. Nutrients, in the form of leaves and seeds, are also caught in the swale, contributing mulch and organic matter to the soil. Fruit trees and other crops established in the swale or on its berm can thrive on the captured water and nutrients."
