Swales and Terraces Swales (on contour trenches and mounds) and terraces prevent erosion and help to hold organic matter and build up the soil over time. They are also vital for catching, holding and storing rain in the ground, which greatly increases and stabilises production of vegetable and tree crops and recharge underground water tables every wet season.
