Erosion control and solutions
To reduce the risks of erosion from wave-lap, currents and scouring to the bank of waterways, we can construct a few different natural sustainable solutions with bio-engineering revetments such as pre-planted coir rolls and hazel faggot revetment.
In addition, we can also offer a more conventional engineering solution such as weld mesh and stone revetment, green oak, Nicospan geotextile revetment, gabion baskets, sheet piles.
Pre-Planted Coir Roll
All these can be used to reinstate the banks that have already eroded or slipped or even create a new bank within a watercourse. With these methods we try to ‘soften’ the hard engineering edge with a greener option by using the pre-planted coir rolls or oak waling boards to the front of the structure.
