Invasive Plant Management &
View Enhancement

Unmanaged, open parcels of land often become home to invasive plant species. The soils found in areas heavily colonized by invasive species are typically devoid of herbaceous groundcover, leaving soils more vulnerable to erosion.

This project involved the construction of a private residence as well as the management of an upland stand of Japanese knotweed and a wide variety of invasive species on the coastal bank.  A goal of the project included the re-establishment of a maritime shrubland, which not only provided substantially better wildlife habitat than the invasive species, but served to be significantly more compatible with preserving scenic views.
