Buffer strips and green belts can include woodland, hedgerows, strips of grassland along water bodies, grass margins, field corners, etc. Vegetated and unfertilized buffer zones act as a shield against overland flow from agricultural fields and reduce run-off from reaching the watercourse, thus decreasing erosion and the movement of pollutants into watercourses.
