Riverbank Stabilisation – Case Study

Client:  Private Client, High Wycombe

Project Title:  Hedge Lea

Scope of works:   Riverbank Stabilisation

It’s said a picture paints a thousand words….  This image shows exactly the problem our client was facing with the riverbank as it gradually eroded away outside her, and her neighbours’, properties.

Providing stabilisation materials and installing aquatic plants for revetment, we were able to transform this stretch of the river to its former glory.  The coir rolls will not only stabilise the bank but will encourage aquatic habitat too.



As well as the physical planning, design, installation and planting, we also guided the client through all of the relevant and necessary EA Permit applications.

It’s fair to say that the client was very happy and she sent us a great testimonial:

The work carried out by the Terraqua Team was fantastic. They were all very professional and dedicated to what they were doing.  They offered good advice as the project progressed and were very easy to get on with. Their attention to detail is very commendable.

They left the working areas very clean and tidy which was much appreciated as they were using common areas used by all the residents of Hedge Lea. It has been a pleasure working with them.

The finished riverbank is looking fantastic and will look even better once the river plants are established and have grown bigger.

I really appreciate all that you did by speaking to the relevant EA professionals and the quality of the documentation you sent through for submission to the EA was faultless.
