This project involved the re-development of a residential property, the last unprotected parcel within a landform to endure decades of unmanaged coastal erosion.
At project commencement, the coastal bank was essentially void of vegetation due to the accelerated destabilization of this landform. The project has met and exceeded the goals of stabilizing a severely undercut coastal bank by using plant-focused bioengineering strategies. Attaining these goals prevented further bank erosion and protected both the client’s and a neighboring property.
Since 2008, the native plants thriving in this property have served to filter stormwater, protect groundwater resources, and provide exceptional wildlife habitat value, while also protecting this iconic property.
