Wind creates sand dunes. Wind also makes them march across the land. Beach grass provides an anchor for the sand, as the sprouting plants slow the movement of wind-driven sand and help the dunes grow in size.

Slatted fences, often called snow fences, mimic the action of the grass, sometimes raising the ground level as much as three feet in a single year. Dune fences also help prevent erosion where the traffic of footpaths makes grass growth impossible. Dune fences are so effective, so ubiquitous, and so evocative of happy times at the beach—they seem almost to be a natural part of the dunes.
