What is a natural shoreline restoration?

Natural, also called living, shoreline restorations are projects that are designed to minimize the impacts of their installation and implementation on the environment, and return the shoreline to a naturally protected state. Most shoreline projects require the planting of vegetation, coupled with the installation of rip-rap, and often excavation. Each project is designed to match the unique characteristics of your site to ensure the success of the project, as well as to enhance the natural beauty of your property. 

What are the benefits?

Natural shorelines offer great protection for property owners due to their adaptability and protective properties. Natural shorelines have the ability to repair themselves after severe weather, and offer great habitat for wildlife. Although they do require more maintenance than bulkheads and rock, natural living shorelines provide a strong barrier for your property from the elements.
